“Chain of infection will break if Kill Corona campaign continues”- CM Chouhan

Bhopal: Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that continuation of Kill Corona campaign will break the chain of Corona infection. Corona’s positivity rate is continuously decreasing in Rewa division. If all try together, then we will be successful in defeating Corona in Vindhya region in the month of May itself. Chief Minister Shri Chouhan was addressing a meeting of District Disaster Management Group in Rewa today.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that ventilators and 100 oxygen supply beds will be increased in Medical College Rewa and Sanjay Gandhi Hospital. Increase the number of oxygen supply beds in community health centres as well. In Rewa, along with administration and public representatives, social organisations and general public are making commendable efforts to defeat Corona. If we follow the instructions of the Janata curfew for 15 days, the corona chain will definitely break. There is a risk of increase of corona infection due to marriages and other major ceremonies, so do not hold wedding ceremonies in the month of May.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that special attention should be paid to the areas adjoining Uttar Pradesh border. Adequate beds and oxygen are available for serious diseases in the district. Arrangements have also been made in Covid care centres for patients with milder symptoms. Along with preventing infection, also carry out awareness campaign for Corona vaccination. Public representatives, social organisations, Corona volunteers and self-help groups should work together for vaccination awareness in rural areas. The MLAs should review the measures to prevent corona infection in the block level disaster management committee. If the disaster management team of village level also makes active efforts, then we will control corona infection soon. He said that under the Mukhyamantri Covid Upchar Yojana, the poor and middle class Corona Patients should be provided free treatment. All private hospitals with treatment facilities for the patients of the district should be connected to this.
