“Make such a strategy so that there is no infection anywhere”- says CM Chouhan

Bhopal: Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the five districts with minimum infection in the state Burhanpur, Khandwa, Jhabua, Alirajpur and Bhind have been partially unlocked. The process of unlocking will begin in the remaining districts in a phased manner from June 1. We have to keep in mind that the infection does not spread anywhere and we have to plan our strategy accordingly.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan instructed that in the ‘unlock’ process, five things should be kept in mind. Hundred percent of people apply masks. More and more tests should be done. Kill-corona campaign should be continued and every patient of cold, cough, fever should be identified and treated immediately. The battle of Corona should be fought with public participation and the local Crisis Management Group should take decisions regarding their village, town and city. Every person must follow corona appropriate behaviour.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan reviewed the condition and arrangements of the corona in the state through video conferencing in the Mantralaya today. Medical Education Minister Shri Vishwas Sarang, Health Minister Dr. Prabhuram Chaudhary, Chief Secretary Shri Iqbal Singh Bains, Additional Chief Secretary Shri Mohammad Suleman, Health Commissioner Shri Akash Tripathi, etc. were present in the meeting.
