Odisha Chief Minister hoped that the COVID situation in Twin Cities will improve in a week

Bhubaneswar:9/9/20: Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday hoped that the COVID situation in Twin Cities will improve in a week and urged people to adhere to the norms.

During the review meeting on the latest status of coronavirus in the state, Patnaik congratulated doctors and health workers as the number of COVID recoveries has crossed one lakh.

The Chief Minister said as the number of coronavirus positive cases in Khurda and Cuttack districts is rising by the day, efforts are on to strengthen the infrastructure, and awareness programmes will be undertaken at the earliest for sensitizing the general public on the matter.

Patnaik directed the officials to provide more ICU beds for coronavirus patients of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar. He also asked the concerned officials to make available more ambulances for serious patients of the twin cities.

The Chief Minister directed the police, health, and other implementing agencies to enforce strict regimen to contain coronavirus and expressed his concern that the makeshift traders in the twin cities of Cuttack and Bhubaneswar are flouting COVID norms.

He said coronavirus is rearing its head again and again as some people do not care to adhere to coronavirus guidelines. The Chief Minister warned that such carelessness will not be tolerated.

Patnaik expressed his satisfaction that the corona situation in Ganjam, Sundargarh, Gajapati, and Koraput has been contained. He advised the authorities of Cuttack-Bhubaneswar municipal corporations, district collectors of Jajpur, Bargarh, Khurda, and Cuttack to follow the Berhampur model to contain the spread of coronavirus.
