The state heaved a sigh of relief with the unexpected drastic decrease in the Corona cases in the wake of the Telangana government claimed to ramp up the containment strategies. While the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh registers not less than sixty cases, Telangana recorded less than ten cases for almost one week in a row.
Days after the citizen credited the state health officials for this, reports and allegations over the government deliberately underreporting cases and decrease in the number of testing rattled the state politics. In a recent revelation, the arrival of thousands of migrants from various states has become a new headache to KCR and team while at least 35 migrants testing positive for Covid-19 during the last five days.
Followed by foreign returnees, Nizamuddin congregation devotees and community transmission, the state reportedly is now in clutches of migrants troubling the government. Dubbed as the ‘third wave’, the migrant worry is quite serious than the previous as contact tracing would be a tough nut to crack for the officials.
In the wake of a seven-member team of doctors’ team in Gandhi Hospital clearing permissions from the ethical committee of ICMR for plasma therapy, Health Minister Eatala Rajender had exuded confidence that the state would be largely free from the disease by May 8. Seems like the pandemic has other plans for the state.
