Sudden Spike In Covid-19 Cases In Karimnagar

33 people in Karimnagar's Chegurthi village have tested positive for Covid-19.
Hyderabad | 19th February 2021
A sudden surge in the number of Covid-19 cases in Karimnagar's Chegurthi village left residents rather worried. 33 people in the area have tested positive for the deadly virus.

According to one of the medical officers of the mandal, Dr Vamshikrishna, all those who tested positive had taken part in a funeral procession organised for a fellow resident of the village.

(Reports say that the deceased, who had passed away ten days ago, had also died after contracting Covid-19.)

He said that all the patients had been asked to observe strict self-quarantine in their homes for the next 15 days, and to keep themselves away from other villagers.

After it was discovered that some people from the neighbouring village of Durshad had also participated in the funeral, the officials are now contemplating whether to carry out tests in the area.

Further, the officials of the Kothapalli Primary Health Centre are also making arrangements to hold medical camps in the surrounding villages of the district. They will reportedly be conducting a large number of Covid-19 tests at the camps.

Meanwhile, the second phase of the Covid-19 inoculation program in Telangana was started in about 140 centres across the state, on February 13. It will conclude on February 25. It is expected that about 3 lakh health workers, employed in both the government and private hospitals of the state, will get vaccinated in the ongoing immunisation program, in two rounds.
