Raipur. The state government finally seems concerned about the rising cases of COVID. Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel will have a big meeting soon on this. The Chief Minister is currently on a tour of Assam. On his return, the Chief Minister will hold a meeting to check the epidemic. This meeting is likely to be held on March 21.
A few days ago, Dharamlal Kaushik had stated that Chhattisgarh is at 6th position in the country in Corona infection cases. The government was not serious before, nor is it serious today. All neighbouring states and major cities of Chhattisgarh have imposed lockdown. They have released new guidelines to tackle the situation. The state government is busy with matches, festivities and elections. Hence, COVID cases are constantly increasing.
One-thousand-and-sixty-six new coronavirus patients have appeared since yesterday. Based on the report released by the Union Health Ministry, Chhattisgarh is among the top six states regarding the number of infections.
