Lucknow:  Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath reviewed the situation with the high-level team-09 constituted for Covid-19 management and gave necessary guidelines.

◆ The situation in Uttar Pradesh is normal amid the rising number of Covid-19 cases in various countries. Over 9.06 lakh tests were done in the month of December, of which 103 cases were found to be positive. The positivity rate of the state was recorded at 0.01% during this period. Presently, there are a total of 49 active cases in the state. Over 42,000 samples were tested in the last 24 hours. People should remain alert and careful.

◆ The changing trends of the virus should be closely monitored. Whatever shortcomings have been found in the mock drills in the past, they should be rectified immediately. During the Covid period, the government had set up ICUs in every district, they should be kept functional. There should be availability of anaesthetic and other specialist doctors and technicians in every ICU. Three technicians should be deployed at the oxygen plant.

◆ In all the hospitals under the Health Department or Medical Education Department, the deployment of specialist doctors, functioning of medical equipment, and proper availability of paramedical staff should be thoroughly scrutinised. There should not be any shortage anywhere. Mock drill should be conducted by the hospitals at their level as well.

◆ Uttar Pradesh is leading in terms of Covid-19 vaccination. Currently, more than 11 lakh doses are available in the state. Continuous contact should be maintained with the Government of India for adequate availability of the vaccines as per the demand. The usefulness of the vaccine in preventing Covid is evident. People should be made aware to take precaution dose. The campaign should be expedited.

◆ In the last two-and-a-half years of the Covid period, a large number of personnel were temporarily deployed to maintain the health services smoothly. They discharged their responsibilities in a commendable manner which is highly inspiring. This service period of these personnel should be counted in future appointments. Preference should be given to such personnel. Clear rules should be prepared in this regard.

◆ It is possible that there may be an increase in new cases in the next few days. Therefore, we have to be alert. This is not the time to panic, but to be alert and careful. Covid protocol has to be followed. Make people aware to wear face masks in public places. Activate the public address system.

◆ Continuous monitoring should be done of the new variant of Covid. Whatever new cases are found, their genome sequencing should be done. Daily testing should be increased. People suffering from serious, incurable diseases, and the elderly will have to take special precautions.

◆ Payment of outstanding honorarium should be made immediately to all temporary/outsourcing personnel serving during the Covid period. If the personnel have not been paid by the concerned agency after payment from the government/department, then taking cognizance of such cases, the arrears should be paid. The honorarium is the right of the personnel after service, it should be paid on time.

◆ The process of paddy procurement is going on smoothly in the state. So far, more than 41 LMT of paddy has been procured from 6.50 lakh farmers at the minimum support price. In relation to this purchase of Rs 8400 crore, at present, the outstanding payment of Rs 6700 crore has been made to the bank accounts of the farmers. The remaining Rs 1700 crore should be paid at the earliest. The availability of DAP and Urea should be monitored in all the districts of the state. There should be no shortage of fertilizers anywhere.

◆ In view of the Global Investors Summit, a one-day Investors and Exporters Conference was organized in Barabanki district. This effort of Barabanki is inspirational for other districts. Such events should be organized in other districts as well. The cooperation of the local public representatives should also be taken into this.

◆ There was an atmosphere of peace and harmony in all the districts of the state amidst the festivities of Christmas and New Year in the state last week. Due to strong law and order, people enjoyed these special occasions with their families in peace. A large number of devotees arrived at religious places like Ayodhya, Kashi, Mathura etc. The police and the administration will have to be always ready for this atmosphere of security to continue in the future.

◆ In the PrayagrajMagh Mela, the faith and needs of Kalpavasis and saints should be respected. Work should be done with inter-departmental coordination. Kalpavasis, devotees, sages and saints should be provided all the facilities that were available in the past. The security system should be tested by the Director General of Police himself by conducting on-site inspection.

◆ Night shelters have been established in the state to help the destitute people amid cold wave. So far more than 1200 night shelters have been set up. The District Magistrates themselves should do a surprise inspection of the arrangement at the night shelters and make corrections where necessary. No one should be seen sleeping on the road in cold weather. Every needy should have the facility of a night shelter. So far 2.86 lakh blankets have been distributed to destitute, needy people. This should be continued further. It should be ensured that the distribution of relief materials like blankets etc are done by the local MP/MLA/local body chairman and public representatives only. Administration officials will be present for assistance on the said occasion. There should be proper arrangements for bonfires at public places.

◆The Prime Minister will flag off the world’s longest river voyage —‘Ganga Vilas Epic’ cruise from Varanasi to Dibrugarh on 13th January. Necessary preparations regarding the journey should be completed well in time.
