beds kept ready with Oxygen facility for the Covid patients. The Beds’

strength will shortly be increased to 750. He said doctors, staff, PPE

Kits, ventilators, medicines, tests kits are kept ready in adequate

numbers. The Minister also announced that for Warangal special Mobile

Labs would be sent.

government has taken all measures to prevent the spread of Corona

virus and offer better treatment to the Corna patients. On the

instructions from the CM we have focussed more on Warangal, which is

second largest city after Hyderabad. We have created a special Corona

ward in the MGM. We are creating another special ward in KMC. We have

made arrangements so that any number of patients can be treated here

without going to Hyderabad or private hospitals. 81 per cent of people

who have Corona were asymptomatic. In the rest, many people are

recovering. Death rate is below 1 per cent. Hence people should not

entertain any fear. The only medicine for those affected with the

Virus is fearlessness. Those who are suffering with the virus, whether

they are in hospitals or in home Isolation, doctors are monitoring

them, giving them suggestions, medicines and help. Isolation Kits are

given to all those affected with virus. We are creating isolation

centres for those whose relatives are not coming forward to help. For

those who died, if their relatives are not coming forward to perform

the last rites, the government is doing it,” the Minister said.

“While keeping focus on Corona, the doctors should also keep an eye on

the seasonal outbreak of contagious diseases. There is a possibility

of outbreak of fevers, contagious diseases during the rain and floods.

Please be on high alert. Conduct sanitary programs in towns and

villages. Clean environment can prevent contagious diseases. Don’t

allow attendants of the Corona patients in the wards. Don’t keep Sari

and Corona patients in the same ward. There are enough PPE Kits for

the staff, utilize them. Keep a special focus on doctors’ safety and

protection. We have given powers to the Collectors to appoint the

temporary staff. Improve biomedical waste management and disposal,”

Rajender said.
