CM holds meet, reviews Covid situation in State

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that the corona can be conquered only by breaking the chain of corona infection. The state has moved from number 7 in the country to number 11 in the active cases. But we will have to be careful as it is not known when corona will change its form.

Chouhan was having a virtual discussion today with Covid Ministers in-charge, Commissioners, Collectors, Inspectors General of Police, Superintendents of Police and members of Crisis Management Group in the districts regarding Corona control.

Chouhan informed that the rate of positive patients in the state is continuously decreasing. On Tuesday, the rate was 22.76 percent, which has declined to 21.71 percent today. Along with this, there has been a steady increase in the recovery rate. The recovery rate of corona in the state is continuously increasing. The recovery rate was 80.41 percent on April 23, which has increased to 81.75 percent. With this, there has been an increase in the number of patients recovering, which was a total of 11,577 till yesterday. Today it has risen to 14,156. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that for the first time, a decline has been observed in the active case in the state. Till yesterday there were 94,276 active cases, which has fallen to 92,773 on Wednesday. Chouhan informed that Chhindwara, Shajapur, Panna, Agar-Malwa, Umaria, Katni, Anuppur, Guna, Dewas and Barwani are the 10 districts where number of new positive cases has been declining daily.

He said that new positive cases are continuously increasing in some districts of the state. The cases are increasing continuously in Indore, Bhopal, Gwalior, Jabalpur and Ujjain in the state. It is the effort of the state government that oxygen and injection can be distributed as per the requirement in all the districts.

Chouhan told the officials in-charge that the most effective way to break the chain of infection is the Corona curfew. Motivate the public and ensure strict adherence to it. The public curfew is not a lockdown, it is a decision taken by the public to protect them from infection. He said that I am happy that about 90 percent of gram panchayats in the state have pledged to impose Corona curfew in their villages.

Chouhan said that Kill Corona Campaign-2 is being conducted in the areas of districts where the infection rate is high. The districts of Rewa, Sehore, Satna, Raisen, Datia, Anuppur, Neemuch, Shivpuri, Narsinghpur and Sheopur are covered under this. He said that by declaring micro-containment zones in the infection affected areas, the infection can be stopped there itself. In the survey, the potential patients should be provided with a medical kit and a brochure related to home isolation.

The Chief Minister said that till date, 69,000 patients are home isolated. The attempt should be such that there is no need to take the patients to the hospital. They should be cured in home isolation itself. Maintain a constant dialogue with them for the care of patients in the home quarantine and covid care centres. In areas where more infection cases are coming, make micro-containment zones by doing micro planning. Do not allow new cases to grow, where there is corona, finish it there.
