Union Minister Ramdas Athawale raised slogans against the Novel Coronavirus on Monday as the deadly virus continues to spread across the globe at an alarming rate. Slogans of “Corona Go! Go Corona!” were raised by the Minister of State for Social Justice and Empowerment in the presence of a group that had gathered to raise awareness about Covid-19, also called the Wuhan Virus and the Chinese Coronavirus.
The slogans are unlikely to assist in the government’s preparation to curb the spread of the epidemic that has assumed pandemic proportions. Meanwhile, the government is trying to take effective measures to prevent the virus from causing mayhem in the country.
On Monday, a person who was admitted to the district Wenlock hospital in Mangalaru after he exhibited symptoms of coronavirus had gone missing. He arrived at the airport in Mangaluru, Karnataka from Dubai on Sunday.
Earlier, an Irish national who had suspected coronavirus symptoms had gone ‘missing’ from Odisha’s SCB Medical College. He was later found in a Bhubaneswar hotel.
Amidst the growing concerns of novel Coronavirus, a video of thousands of used coronavirus masks dumped at an isolated spot near Kalher pipeline in Bhiwandi sent ripples of panic wave among the people. Imran Shaikh, a godown staffer, was allegedly seen in the video dumping waste masks.
