Everyone should wear masks, maintain mutual distance and take all other precautions.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that contacts of every Corona patient should be traced and it should be ensured that no patient is missed. Micro-containment area should be formed even if there are just one or two cases, so that infection does not spread.
