Gear Up For Challenging Time Ahead, Naveen Tells BJD MLAs

Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Wednesday said Odisha has entered the most challenging phase in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic despite having one of the highest recovery rates in the country and one of the lowest mortality rates.

In his address to BJD legislators, Naveen said since monsoon has arrived and almost 10,000 people are coming to Odisha everyday, mostly from hotspot cities, it is their responsibility to monitor the system to the ward level to prevent spread of coronavirus.

The chief minister asked the MLAs to scale up Jeevan Bindu blood donation programme, take special care of elderly persons and ensure awareness on use of face masks and social distancing.

Stating that each of the 50,000 Covid Care Committees at ward level is provided Rs. 10,000 from Chief Minister’s Relief Fund, he said each panchayat should have Covid Care Home for which Rs 50,000 is sanctioned.
