The Gujarat state government has recently launched the ‘Maru Gaam Corona Mukt Gaam‘ (My village, Corona free village) campaign in a bid to check the Chinese coronavirus pandemic in villages. Speaking at Chekhla village in Sanand Taluka in Ahmedabad district, Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani said that the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic much more severe, fast spreading and fatal and often affecting the entire family. “There is need to be all the more alert,” he said.

He urged people to follow all protocol to combat the pandemic but also appealed to people at large not to panic. He informed that the state government has formed ‘Gram Yoddha Committee’ in over 16,000 villages across Gujarat and undertaken individual surveillance of about 50 lakh people. This led to identifying 5,000 people with COVID-like symptoms who are currently in isolation.

As of now, 1.4 lakh tests are being conducted in the state and requires about 1,000 MT of medical oxygen. The number of beds in the state has been increased from 45,000 on March 15 to one lakh now. As per Rupani, the state government has ordered all necessary medicines and injections for Mucormycosis at Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Surat and Rajkot for which separate wards have been created. 

He informed that adequate assistance is being given by the Centre to fight the pandemic. He reiterated that adequate arrangement for oxygen and bed requirement is in place and people need not panic. He urged people to get themselves tested if they notice symptoms and get themselves admitted to community COVID facilities in case of need.
