CM Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday issued several guidelines reviewing the situation in 13 districts affected by coronavirus through video conferencing. He said that in districts where more than 100 cases are being reported daily, or where the total active case figure is more than 500, the district collector should decide on holidays in secondary schools according to the local situation. Appropriate decision should also be taken to control night traffic in such districts, but in no circumstances should the movement of essential materials like medicines, food grains, etc. be interrupted.
The condition of corona infection has deteriorated rapidly in Maharashtra as well as some states in South India. In such a situation, there is a possibility of return of UP citizens living there. CM said that the process of panchayat elections is also going on. The coming days will be challenging for us. We have to deal with it successfully. Last year, all the districts of Uttar Pradesh gave a great example of Kovid management, this time we will definitely win this battle with teamwork.
