Yogi asks officials to focus on districts reporting high Covid-19 cases

Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday directed officials to focus more on Lucknow, Prayagraj, Kanpur and Gorakhpur as these districts are reporting a higher number of COVID-19 cases.

He also asked them to ensure all COVID-19 hospitals have full staff.

"All COVID-19 hospitals should function with full capacity and where ever needed, manpower should be increased. Specialist doctors should be appointed in L2 (Level-2) COVID hospitals and it should be ensured that serious patients do not have any problem in admission in these hospitals," Adityanath said.

He said this during a routine COVID-19 review meeting here.

The chief minister also emphasised on contact tracing of patients and running of testing laboratories with full capacity.
