Chief Minister Sri K. Chandrashekar Rao has instructed officials concerned that in Hyderabad and its surrounding places where there is more spread of Corona Virus, strict regulations should be maintained and implemented. Along with Hyderabad, officials should be alert at villages neighbouring Kurnool and Guntur districts.
The CM held a high-level review meeting here on Wednesday at Pragathi Bhavan on containment of Corona Virus and implementation of lockdown. Medical and Health Minister Sri Eatala Rajender, Government’s Chief Advisor Sri Rajiv Sharma, Chief Secretary Sri Somesh Kumar, DGP Sri Mahender Reddy, Special Chief Secretary (Health) Ms. Shanti Kumari, Principal Secretaries Sri Narsing Rao, Sri Ramakrishna Rao and others attended.
“The situation in the State is under control except in Hyderabad and its surrounding districts. The spread is less in other districts. All the new cases being reported are from Hyderabad, Medchal, Rangareddy and Vikarabad districts. Hence the officials should put more focus on Hyderabad. Whoever is having symptoms they should be given treatment and all those who came in contact with the positive cases should be quarantined. Ensure strict measures so that nobody from Hyderabad should go out nor outsiders enter into Hyderabad. Appoint sharp police, IAS and Medical and Health officers as the Special Officers. Round off entire Hyderabad and eradicate the Virus,” the CM said.
“Corona spread is rampant in the neighbouring Kurnool and Guntur districts of AP. Appoint special officers in these border districts and see to it that nobody enters the state nor leave it. The virus was not originated from here. It came from outside and spread. Hence, the more effectively we control the movement of people, the Virus can be controlled substantially,” the CM said.
