Yogi Adityanath takes the Coronavirus vaccine, here is how UP is faring as compared to Maharashtra

"I thank PM & Union Health Ministry for making the vaccine available free of cost. I also thank the scientists of the country. The vaccine is completely safe. We all should take it when our turn comes."

On Monday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath received the first dose of the Coronavirus vaccine at the Civil Hospital in Lucknow. He said, “I thank PM & Union Health Ministry for making the vaccine available free of cost. I also thank the scientists of the country. The vaccine is completely safe. We all should take it when our turn comes.”

Yogi Adityanath also appealed to the people to adhere to the Coronavirus guidelines, even after taking the vaccine. “I appeal to the people to take all precautions even after taking the vaccine. The new COVID wave is the result of our complacency in observing COVID appropriate behaviour,” he remarked.

How UP government is fighting the Coronavirus pandemic?

On Sunday, the state of Uttar Pradesh reported 4,164 new cases and 31 additional fatalities. The total death toll in UP has now reached 8,881. While the total number of active cases stand at 19,738, a whopping 6, 01,440 Coronavirus patients have recovered from the infection.

In light of the rising cases, the state government had announced the closure of government and private schools for students studying in Classes 1-8 until April 11. The Yogi government has instructed schools to strictly adhere to the Coronavirus protocols for other classes. The Chief Minister has directed officials to increase the number of tests conducted each day.

In a recent order, Chief Secretary Rajendra Kumar Tiwari informed that a 25-metre containment zone, covering 20 houses, would be set up if one Coronavirus case is established. He added that about 60 houses will fall under a 50-metre containment zone if more than one Coronavirus case is detected. Tiwari emphasised that an area will be demarcated as a containment zone for 14 days from the date of collection of samples from the last Coronavirus positive patient.
