Lucknow, September 30: As a result of the rapid increase in daily testing of coronavirus infection among the infected people in the state, Uttar Pradesh achieved another important achievement on Wednesday by crossing one crore swab testing in a single day.

A few days ago, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had directed to achieve the target of one crore Covid screening by the end of this month, working on which it was completed on the last day of this month.

The Chief Minister has said that so far more than one crore Covid-19 have been tested in the state, which is a record.

He has instructed to conduct door-to-door survey, surveillance and medical testing proceedings at full speed to control the infection of corona.

Yogi further said that the state government is fighting the fight against Corona with full urgency.

The Chief Minister said in a high-level meeting at his government residence on Wednesday that the Integrated Command and Control Centre has an important role in controlling the spread of corona and providing better treatment to patients. Therefore, it should be ensured that the Integrated Command and Control Centre in all the districts is fully functional.

The Chief Minister said that along with the communication at the district level with the patients living in home isolation, the communication should be maintained through the CM help line.

He also directed to continue the work of sanitation and disinfection.

The Chief Minister said that monitoring of surveillance works should be done continuously. This work is very important, so it should be ensured that there is no negligence on any level in surveillance activities.

He instructed to maintain the arrangements of Covid hospitals in order to maintain adequate availability, including backup of medicines and oxygen in Covid hospitals. Additional manpower should be provided in these dedicated hospitals as required.

The Chief Minister said that the procurement of paddy under the Minimum Support Price (MSP) will start in the state from October 01. All necessary arrangements should be ensured at the paddy procurement centres, so that farmers are not inconvenienced.

He said that arrangements for go shelter sites should be made better. The work of community toilets and village secretariat in village panchayats should be done on a war footing.
