TRS leader and MLC K Kavitha today said that the house-to-house fever survey being conducted in Telangana was ideal for the nation as well. She said that the survey proved to be a "handy" and "effective" tool in detecting fever and other symptoms of Covid-19 at a primary level and breaking the chain of the spread of the disease.
She spoke on the matter during her visit to a Lakshmi Narasimha Swamy temple in Nizamabad's Nandipet area along with her family where she performed pujas.
The MLC claimed that the surveys in the villages of the state had yielded positive results as the local health staff had been able to detect fever in people and had therefore also been able to provide timely help to those suffering from mild symptoms amidst the pandemic.
"The government of Telangana is committed to containing the spread of the pandemic by vaccinating the people of the state. Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has been making continued efforts to check the spread of Covid-19 and the door-to-door survey has helped greatly in this effort. The lockdown imposed from May 12 is also yielding good results and has been effective in reducing the number of new cases as well as fatalities. We have been able to implement the lockdown successfully with the cooperation of the people of our state," she said.
"The case numbers will drop further if the public continues to follow the Covid-19 safety and prevention protocols, and also gets vaccinated. Our government will provide vaccines to all and there is no need to panic. The officials of the health department are currently procuring doses in adequate numbers. So, people should not worry about vaccine availability," Kavitha added.
During her visit, the MLC visited Nandipet bridge, built at a cost of Rs 110 crore, as well. Since the village connects the state to Maharashtra, she urged the locals to be extremely careful and asked them to stay safe.
