Report by Nishapati Nayak; Sunabeda: Koraput Lok Sabha MP Saptagiri Sankar Ulaka has said that the number of positives in the Rayagada district is on the rise due to the spread of pandemic corona infections. In the district, the area where the quarantine was located has been declared a contentment zone by the administration, but the number of people living in the quarantine area has been positive. As the district administration is not taking immediate steps in this direction, a situation like Ganjam is likely to emerge in Rayagada and it is necessary to identify the victims and keep others away from the infection as soon as possible, Said Ulaka.
