We have effectively checked corona spread: Yogi

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that the state had effectively controlled the spread of coronavirus.

He said it could be made possible due to the guidance of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi and a good teamwork in the state.

He, however, cautioned against any complacency and said a minor carelessness could be dangerous.

In a statement issued here on Wednesday, the Chief Minister said that the lockdown was implemented strictly and the asymptomatic corona patients were kept in the hospitals which helped in stopping the spread of the virus.

He said that all precautions have to be taken during the unlock exemptions while ensuring adequate treatment of the corona infected persons.

The Chief Minister said that the provisions of the Prime Minister’s special economic package should be utilised fully to provide employment in the state.

This package has facilitated loans for street vendors and arranged for the subsidy in case of inability to repay it in time as well as easing the digital payment. He directed that an action plan should be implemented for loaning facilities to the salons and carpenters, etc.

He said that the lower level of infection in the state has rendered good opportunity and an extensive programme should be prepared to create job opportunities for migrant labour, offer work to street vendors, and generate employment in the MSME and big industries.

The Chief Minister asked officials to conduct a survey about employability in the agriculture and allied areas, MSME and big industries.

Efforts should be made to find out that how many persons can be employed in these sectors for six months or more. A software should also be prepared about the details of how many persons were given employment and how many will be employed in the near future.

Yogi Adityanath asked doctors to give regular feedback about the health recovery of the corona patients to their attendants.

He said the doctors and nurses should take regular rounds in the hospitals and take special care of patients who are on oxygen or ventilator support.

The ventilators and newly acquired TriNeT machines should be kept functional in all the districts. He said the requirement of TriNeT machines should be assessed so that the state government can procure more machines.

He asked private hospitals to purchase the machine and enhance testing in the state.
