Uttar Pradesh has reported 7,735 new COVID-19 cases, 17,668 recoveries, and 172 deaths in the last 24 hours
Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath on Friday said the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic will be successful if the media supported the government in motivating people to go for vaccination.
The UP Chief Minister said that people need to come forward for vaccination against COVID-19 when they get the chance.
“People must come to get vaccinated. People need to be motivated for this,” Yogi Adityanath said while adding, “Our administration and public representatives are doing this work (of motivating people). If the media also supports us, then we will be able to successfully pursue this fight against Covid-19.”
The CM said that the state government was arranging the availability of the vaccine in rural areas as well at Common Service Centres (CSCs).
“Every person should get vaccinated in rural areas. They will not have to go out to get the vaccine. We are going to arrange for the availability and registration of vaccine in the Common Service Centers of the villages,” Yogi said.
In another tweet, the chief minister said, “I have asked the public representatives and district administration that if a person does not have a ration card or his ration card is canceled, then make his ration available by providing him a new ration card.”
Yogi said that the government was trying to save both the lives of people as well as their livelihood. “To save lives, we have imposed a ‘partial Corona curfew’. In order to ensure that there is no problem in running the industries, action is being taken to create Covid Care Center and Covid Help Desk in the industries,” he informed.
Some new efforts have also been started in the direction of vaccination and creation of separate centers in rural areas, the UP government stated.
“Screening is going on through monitoring committees in the state. Monitoring committees also distributes medicine kits along with tracing. After this, RRT goes there and does antigen test of symptomatic and suspicious persons,” Yogi Adityanath said, in another tweet.
It is pertinent to mention that the UP government has declared mucormycosis or black fungus a notifiable disease. The Centre on Thursday had urged states to declare black fungus an epidemic by making it a notifiable disease under the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897.
