Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) treasurer Gudur Narayana Reddy on Sunday demanded that the State government clarify whether the State had entered the third stage of coronavirus transmission. He asked the government disclose profiles of patients who tested positive in the last 15 days.
"Entire Telangana has been in lockdown since March 22. There is a complete ban on inter-State and inter-district travel. As announced by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, nearly 27,000 suspects with travel history or their contacts have been quarantined and almost everyone has completed the mandatory quarantine period of 28 days.
If all the suspects have already covered, from where are these new cases being reported every day? Have we already entered the Stage-3 i.e., community transmission?" he wondered. Speaking to media persons after distributing sanitisers and masks to poor people of slums in Secunderabad Assembly segment, Narayana Reddy said that the State government was hiding statistics as well as the real status of Covid-19 situation in Telangana.
He demanded a status note on the Coronavirus situation in Telangana with complete details viz., number of people identified as suspects, how they were quarantined or treated later. It should disclose the number of tests it conducted ever since the outbreak of pandemic. It should also explain why Covid-19 test is not conducted on secondary contacts and other suspects with or without symptoms.
