Hyderabad | 12th March 2020
The Telangana Legislative Assembly today took a decision to take up a short discussion on the coronavirus issue on Friday, to discuss steps to create awareness among the people and to remove their fears on the spread of the virus.

Health Minister Etala Rajender earlier said in reply to questions that only one person had tested positive for Covid-19 in the state till date, and that even he was declared cured of the virus, leaving the state free of the virus for now.

He added that as part of precautionary measures, thermal screening of passengers arriving from foreign countries was being done at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in the city. A state-level coordination committee had also been formed and a nodal officer designated for monitoring of the virus.

"We have also established a state control room at Hyderabad, and the 104 call centre is operating as a coronavirus helpline too. Isolation wards have been established in 13 government hospitals in the state, and an ICMR-accredited Covid-19 testing lab has been set up at Gandhi Hospital. Awareness programmes are being taken up across the State," he explained.

A discussion was then proposed on what the members would want done in addition to the above to halt the virus from entering and spreading in Telangana.
