The current wave of Covid-19 has hit 44 cities across China.

Haryana continues to witness a spike in fresh Covid-19 cases across the state which has added to the woes of the government as well as the health department requiring both to come up with proper arrangements to curb the spread. Although, learning from the previous experiences, the government has taken new initiatives so that timely treatment and other medical facilities along with medicine for the patients can be made be available in order to avoid untimely deaths. According to the data, out of the total fresh cases reported in Haryana during the last 10 days, nearly 70% surfaced in Gurugram and Faridabad falling in National Capital Region (NCR) and adjoining to Delhi which is a matter of serious concern as the even spread of the Covid-19 in both districts has led to an increase in the disease across the state.

Thus, it is a noticeable fact that an increase in new cases in these districts clearly indicates that things are getting out of control. The worsening scenario is evident from the statistics as for the very time more than 500 Covid cases were reported on 1 January in the state.

While reacting to the increasing number of fresh cases, Health Minister Anil Vij, who also holds the portfolio of the Home Minister, said that the situation is under control as the state government is having a close eye on every movement pertaining to a spurt in the disease. Besides, the officials have been ordered to make proper arrangements to ensure the timely treatment of the patients.

He further said that in the wake of the spurt in new cases, the officials and police have been issued orders to ensure the implementation of Covid protocols.
