Do not remove your mask, sanitise and wash hands.

We are increasing COVID-19 dedicated hospitals, beds jumbo Hospitals, setting up doctor’s task force, oxygen beds. We did face a shortage in beds as the cases increased but now we are making sure that the oxygen is available for the treatment.
“As the case is increasing, we will start a testing facility where they will visit the house and take the necessary information and I request all the leaders MLA to take the responsibility of their respective wards and help us in chasing the virus”.
Giving example CM said to remember the days when we came home after playing and our mom use to tell us to wash our hands. This is what we need to do it now as well. Now we have to follow those same rules to keep ourselves and our family safe from the deadly virus.
