Raipur: In a bid to maintain transparency regarding Covid-19 status in Chhattisgarh, the health department has found out names of over 6,000 people who were infected with the deadly virus, but their names couldn’t be included in the official figures.
The health department of Chhattisgarh has made a remarkable achievement in the direction of preventing the spread of infection and providing better facilities to the Covid 19 positive patients. Working under the leadership of health minister TS Singh Deo, the government has adopted complete transparency regarding the status of the corona pandemic in the state since the first case of infection was received.
To maintain this complete transparency with the public, the health department has dig out names of nearly 6,000 people who were infected earlier but their names couldn’t be included in official figures due to numerous reasons including allegedly changing names to hide identity and admitted in private hospitals for treatment. This has been done in a span of one month. These figures will now be added to the total figures of the state.
Health Minister Shri TS Singh Deo has assured the people that the government is dedicated to maintaining complete transparency regarding the Covid pandemic status between the government and the public in Chhattisgarh. The citizens of the state have the right to get all the information.
“We will put all our possible efforts to ensure that names of all the covid positive patients in the state have been included in the official records and that no one has been exempted. The entire data will be shared with the people of Chhattisgarh by including such people in the list”, he added.
