As the rising cases of COVID-19 in the cities sharing borders with Delhi, Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has directed his officials to conduct a survey of vacant buildings in Gurugram. The Chief Minister wants these vacant buildings to be converted into isolation zones for COVID-19 patients if the need arises.
Manohar Lal Khattar gave these instructions during his review meeting on COVID-19 situation with state officials. He also instructed the officials to strictly monitor COVID sample testing being conducted at private labs. He asked for a timely record of such tests and the implementation of adequate measures to isolate the patients.
Khattar also appeared to be concerned over the implementation and following of the protective measures from coronavirus. He emphasized the distribution of masks among the public.
As the number of COVID patients has crossed three thousand mark, Gurugram remains one of the worst-hit districts in Haryana.
Chief Executive Officer of Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority, V S Kundu, who was present in the meeting, said that a unified portal is being prepared about COVID-19 through which complete details will be given online, including beds and facilities available in hospitals across the state.
