More areas in Bidar under Covid grip Covid-19 spread its tentacles to other areas in City
On the one hand, people of the Old City area in the City are expecting decrease in Covid-19 cases, on the other hand, the city has witnessed four new cases in the last two days. This
has created a tensed environment among the people of the City.
With the report of two more Covid-19 positive cases in the city on Tuesday, the total number of cases has reached 30 in the district.
People attended the Nijamuddin congregation in Delhi are the basic source of infection in Bidar district and now, the ‘D’ group workers serving in Bidar Institute of Medical Sciences (BRIMS) are being identified as the
active carriers of Coronavirus.
After the death of a 48-year person due to illness at Rajeshwari Nagar in Basavakalyan, the doctors who had treated him earlier had referred to BRIMs suspecting Covid-19. Prima facie, it has come to know that the person had breathed his last as he was suffering from fever, blood pressure, and diabetes. His last rites were held following the Covid-19 norms.
Including the deceased person’s wife, son, daughter, lorry cleaner, 16 persons have been quarantined at a hospital in Basavakalyan and 12 more persons including his son-in-law, who has
come from Hyderabad
have been quarantined in Bhalki.
Deputy Commissioner H R Mahadev said, the report of the deceased person’s sample which had sent on May 7 has tested negative, but the second report is yet to come, he added.
Earlier, the infection was found only in Old City, but now, Covid has spread its tentacles to Harurageri Cross, Khazi Colony in New City, Iden Colony and Mailur Cross in Mangalpet. The district administration is creating awareness among the people to follow precautionary measures since last one-and-half month, but, people have failed to follow them strictly, he added.
The number of people returning to Bidar from Maharashtra is increasing day by day.
The staff working at check posts are putting seals to every person entering the district after checking their health. But, it has become a headache to the district administration to trace the people who are illegally entering their villagers in night hours through farm fields.
