Closely monitor containment areas: Jagan tell officials
Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has instructed the officials to closely monitor the ground situation in red zones, besides strengthening the Tele-medicine system and ensure medical facilities to high risk patients with other ailments besides making available essential commodities throughout the State.
Briefing the measures being taken to contain the spread of COVID-19 in Kurnool and Guntur, Health Minister Alla Nani said that the pandemic was not in all parts of the two districts but was restricted only to a few areas. The Chief Minister ordered the officials to monitor the situation from ground zero level and ensure the availability of daily essential goods near containment zones. Only one pass for a family should be given and only that person should be allowed to come outside. He ordered the officials to intensify the preventive measures in Nandyala as more number of cases are showing up there.
Regarding the success of the YSR Telemedicine programme, the Chief Minister asked the officials to strengthen the programme further. For the same, officials told that so far 8,395 members have consulted doctors through this programme and medicines were also being delivered to the patients.
He directed the officials to ensure hassle-free medical services to dialysis patients and other high-risk patients. Briefing the alternate measures taken to deliver these services, the officials said the services have been shifted to other hospitals as few hospitals have been announced as COVID hospitals. The details of the services in hospitals are being notified to the public so that patients would not face any issues.
Chief Minister has instructed the officials to set up a mobile lab to help testing migrant workers and those who are stranded at various camps of the state.
To support the tomato, onion, chili, and other crops, the Chief Minister asked the officials to monitor the marketing and price fluctuations of these crops. He instructed the officials to decentralize Rythu Bazars and sell the products purchased from farmers in these Rythu Bazaars.
