the strategy to contain spread of Corona Virus in the GHMC jurisdiction
in the next three to four days. He said a decision will also be taken on
the proposals that lock down should be re-imposed under the GHMC
limits for a few days. The CM said that there is no need to get anxious or
entertain fear about the more number of positive cases in the city as the
government had made all arrangements to offer proper treatment to all
the needy.
A high-level review meeting held at Pragathi Bhavan here on
Sunday on containment of Corona Virus, treatment available for the

issues. Medical and Health Minister Sri Etela Rajender, Municipal
Administration Minister Sri K.T.Rama Rao, R&B Minister Sri Vemula
Prashanth Reddy, Chief Secretary Sri Somesh Kumar, Medical and
Health doctors participated in the meeting. The review was held on
Corona virus spread, meausres taken to contain it. Minister Sri Rajender
explained about the prevailing situation.
“Corona is spreading speedily all over the country. In the same
way In Telangana State there is increase in the positive cases. When
compared to the national average, the death rate in Telangana State is
less. There is no need for fear. Necessary treatment is given to the
positive patients. We have kept thousands of beds ready in both
government and private hospitals and colleges. Patients who are in
critical conditions are treated in the hospitals. Asymptomatic patients are
given treatment in their homes,” Sri Rajender explained.
Special Chief Secretary (Medical and Health) Ms Shanta Kumari,
in her report pointed out that the number of deaths due to the virus is at
very low in the State. The Average deaths due to Covid19 at the
National level is 3.04 while it is 1.52 in Telangana State. She said that

more number of tests are being conducted in Telangana state. All those
tested positive were given the required treatment, she stated.
A detailed discussion took place at the meeting on the spread of
Corona under the GHMC limits. Minister Sri Rajender said that several
Medical and Health officials and medical experts are asking for another
15-day lock down under the GHMC limits.
“Hyderabad is a metropolitan city in which one crore people live. It
is but natural that like other cities in the country, the spread of Corona is
also high in the city. People started moving around after the lock down is
lifted. This led to the spread of the virus. In Chennai in Tamil Nadu, lock
down was re-imposed to contain the spread. Other cities in the country
are also thinking on these lines. Medical and Health department also
made proposals that the re-imposition of lock down in Hyderabad is a
good. But re-imposition of lock down will be a very major decision.
Government machinery and people should be made ready for this.
Especially the police department should be kept ready. Cabinet meeting
should be convened. A decision on lock down should be taken by
eliciting views from all the concerned. Let us examine the situation
keenly for two to three days. If need be, Cabinet will be convened in
three to four days to discuss proposals for the lockdown, alternatives
and other related issues and a decision will be taken,” CM Sri KCR said.
The CM further said,” Several issues to be taken into
consideration, if we decide to impose lock down under the GHMC limits.
If lock down is imposed, it should be implemented strictly and totally.
There should be a daylong Curfew with one or two hour relaxation to buy
the essentials. Flights and train services have to be stopped. All
arrangements should be made from the government’s side. Hence, the
government will examine all the issues in depth and would take the
necessary decision.”
