Though there is no risk of a second wave, during the winter season, people should be alert and defend themselves against Covid-19,” the Minister said in an interaction with media representatives in the Veenavanka Mandal.”
Although the spread of the second wave has been widespread in the United Kingdom and other countries, and deaths have also been registered, so far there are no signs of a second wave in Telangana, he said, adding that, in view of the prevalent situation in other countries, both Telangana and the Centre are conducting airport tests, increasing surveillance and sending travellers to isolation centres. Patients testing positive for Covid-19 are being transferred for treatment to hospitals, he said.
The Minister said that all hospitals across the state were well equipped to perform tests on symptomatic people and provide care to individuals, adding that the Telangana government was well prepared to face any kind of situation.
Asking people not to worry about the virus, he hoped that coronavirus vaccines would soon be made available to the public. (INN)
