Hyderabad | 19th April 2021
The alarming surge in the number of Covid-19 cases in Telangana has become a cause of great concern for all in the state, especially since the TRS government continues to maintain that there is, as of now, no need to impose a lockdown or any curfews.

The government's stand, however, is continually challenged not only by various organisations and many in the public but also by the state's case tally.

A medical bulletin released by the state's health department revealed that 4,009 fresh cases were recorded in Telangana yesterday, pushing up the number of active cases to an alarming 39,154. Further, the state also recorded 14 fatalities yesterday. This means that the cumulative Covid-19 fatality figure is now a high 1,838.

A notice from Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar that was released today, stated that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao had also tested positive.

In his statement, Kumar, who had himself tested positive some days ago, said that the CM was displaying mild symptoms.

KCR is currently being attended to by a team of doctors at his farmhouse where he is quarantining, the communique stated.

His son, IT Minister K T Rama Rao, took to social media to assure the CM's supporters that there was no need for worry. The post read, "Hon’ble CM KCR Garu has tested positive for COVID with mild symptoms. He is currently isolated & being monitored by doctors Been receiving a lot of messages with concern for his well-being. He is a gritty man & a fighter. Am sure he will recover soon with all of your prayers."

Concerned by the rapid spread of Covid-19 across the nation, many scientists and doctors have said that the key to preventing the pandemic from wreaking more havoc than it already has lies in the hands of the public and their readiness to comply with "Covid- appropriate behaviour", and have appealed to the public to wear masks while outside and to practice social distancing at all times.

They have also said that remaining alert and disciplined will keep people from getting infected by the disease.
