Telangana Health Director Dr Srinivas Rao today assured the people of the state that there was no need to panic about a second wave of Covid-19 occurring in the state as the government was taking all the measures required to prevent the spread of the dangerous disease.

Addressing a press conference at his office in Koti, the director however urged the people to remain cautious about following the safety guidelines issued by the Centre and the ICMR.

"Though the state government is fully prepared to handle the pandemic, and has equipped the healthcare sector with adequate beds, medicines, vaccines, and trained healthcare staff, and is taking full care to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the people must also remain alert and help this fight against the disease. It is important to practice social distancing, wear masks, use hand sanitiser, maintain personal hygiene, and clean one's surroundings," he said.

Highlighting the government's commitment to fighting the spread of Covid-19, Rao added, "Telangana's health officials have, so far, administered 24,49,330 doses of Covid-19 vaccines. And the state continues to remain committed to vaccinating every person who has not yet received the injection. However, we must all remember that it is of utmost importance to follow the required safety protocols at an individual level as well. Those who have been vaccinated should not become complacent. If they do not follow the guidelines, they too have a chance of contracting the Coronavirus."

Though the state government has directed all educational institutions to suspend on-site classes for the time being, and has postponed all college and university-level exams, it too maintains that there is no need to fear the outbreak of a second Covid-19 wave. It has decided that it will not implement a second lockdown any time soon.
