Reckless activities keep Covid + cases on rise
Covid-19 cases are increasing day-by-day with increasing political and official activities in Bhadradri-Kothagudem district.
Kothagudem: Covid-19 cases are increasing day-by-day with increasing political and official activities in Bhadradri-Kothagudem district.
Thanks to the political leaders and people representatives of ruling and Opposition parties, who are allegedly one of the reasons for increasing corona cases in the district.
According to doctors, coming three months are very important. If people neglect and do not follow Covid-19 rules may have to face serious problems.
Though the World Health Organisation and doctors are reiterating about the virus spreading in winter season, the people's representatives are allegedly breaking rules and neglecting warnings by participating and organising programmes and meetings. Officials noticed that corona cases have increased during Bathukamma and Dasara festivals in the district.
According to the medical and health department health bulletin, every day more than 100 cases are being reported in the district. One health official said during MLAs and Ministers' visits, mass gathering was taking place and there are more chances for spreading the virus.
K Venkat Rao, a senior citizen of Kothagudem, said political meetings and official programmes are being conducted each day and people are gathering, which is spreading the virus. People are faulting the people's representatives and officials for conducting mass meetings and programmes. Another important reason for the virus spread is that people are not following social distance and wearing mask.
District Medical and Health Officer G Bhaskar Naik said that they are creating awareness among the people, but most of them are not taking care and coming out without masks and not maintaining social distance.
