COVID:Amarinder urges all to follow safety protocols to check spread

Chandigarh, Jun 29 (UNI) Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday hoped that in view of the current Covid-19 situation across the state, there would be no further lockdown and appealed to the people to strictly adhere to the safety protocols and restrictions to save themselves, their families and the state.

Stating this while interacting with mediapersons, the Chief Minister said the State has made elaborate arrangements to combat any emergent situation in near future.

Sharing the inputs regarding COVID-19 till June 28, he said there were 5216 confirmed corona cases, of which 133 deaths had been reported. He said as many as 23 patients were in High Dependency Unit (HDU) and seven critically ill-patients on ventilators.

He also informed that the COVID testing capacity would be enhanced to 20,000 per day by July end with four new testing labs, which was at present around 10,000 per day.

Pointing out further, Capt Amarinder said the state had adequate essential equipment to manage any further spread of the pandemic, which it had been largely able to control so far and he didn’t wish the stocks to be pulled out of storage for use as his entire focus was on saving lives.

Appreciating the indomitable spirit of Punjabis, Capt Amarinder called upon them to keep restraint in this hour of crisis in the larger public interests.

The Chief Minister further said he gets really perturbed, when he goes through the daily reports of people challaned for violating the health safety measures and cautioned them to abide by the precautionary health guidelines not only to ensure their own safety but of the entire state too.

He also advised the people not to be callous and misconstrue the symptoms of Corona Virus with common flu, cold, cough, body ache and fever due to change of season rather they should immediately seek advice from the doctor to avail timely treatment.
