“Mandsaur will set an example in following Covid appropriate behaviour”- says CM Chouhan

Bhopal: Chief Minister Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the experience of the world shows that wearing a mask reduces the risk of corona by up to 95 percent. We quickly forget the pain of lockdown. The lockdown has affected the employment and business of many people. The infection can be controlled by wearing a mask and following the precautions of maintaining distance. With this we can continue the economic activities of employment and business. Now is the opportunity to set an example in following Covid friendly behaviour. Surely “Amazing-Unique Mandsaur” will take initiative in this direction.

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan was virtually inaugurating the newly constructed RT-PCR lab at Mandsaur from his residence. Finance and Commercial Taxes Minister Jagdish Deora and MLA Garoth-Bhanpura Shri Devi Lal Dhakad also participated in the programme from the Chief Minister’s residence. Mandsaur MLA Shri Yashpal Singh Sisodia was present in the programme.

Lab costing 50 lakhs

This lab has been set up at a cost of Rs. 50 lakh with Rs. 35 lakh contributed by MLA Yashpal Singh Sisodia from MLA fund and Rs.15 lakh by social worker and industrialist Shri Pradeep Ganediwal. This lab proves the phrase “where there is a will there is a way” as correct. The district hospital has been rejuvenated by setting up of central oxygen line at more than 250 beds, 400 oxygen concentrators, ICU beds along with lab establishment, which shows the service and cooperative spirit of Mandsaur.

Stop the third wave

Chief Minister Shri Chouhan said that setting up of RT-PCR lab will help in increasing the number of tests. Tests should be conducted in every nook and corner of the district. Contact tracing, isolation of positive people, treatment and kill corona campaign should continue uninterrupted. Lab establishment and expansion of facilities in hospitals are being done to face the third wave of Corona. Our corona appropriate behaviour should be such that the third wave could not affect the state at all.
