Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that proper attention should be paid to post-covid care in all the districts with strict prevention of corona infection, best arrangements for treatment of corona in hospitals. In case of post-covid side effects, patients who are in home isolation or covid care centres should be admitted to hospitals or post covid centres as per their treatment requirement.

Chouhan clearly said that it would not be tolerated if any private hospital affiliated under the Mukhyamantri Covid Upchar Yojana refuses free treatment to any Covid patient who is eligible for the scheme if their beds are empty. Chouhan said that the date of procurement should be extended in the areas where the farmers have wheat remaining for procurement. Wheat of each farmer should be purchased.

Every person should put on a mask, keep distance between each other, and strictly follow the corona curfew. Action is being taken for not wearing masks, non-observance of corona curfew etc. in urban areas of the state as well as in rural areas. A fine of Rs 18 lakh has been imposed in rural areas.

The Chief Minister said that the government is also making free arrangements for treatment of black fungal disease after Covid. For its treatment in the state, 2 thousand amphotericin injections are being airlifted from Gujarat.
