Hyderabad, June 8 : As many as 153 healthcare professionals in Telangana have tested positive for Covid-19, the state government said on Monday.

None of the affected is in critical condition and they are all recovering.

This was stated by officials during a meeting convened by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao to review the covid situation.

They alleged that some people are trying to demoralise the healthcare personnel by stating that doctors and other medical staff were getting affected by Covid-19.

The government said healthcare personnel across the world were getting affected while treating Covid-19 patients and this was not happening only in Telangana. It pointed out that 480 healthcare professionals in AIIMS Delhi were infected.

Health department officials and experts said that the government hospitals have the capacity to treat any number of Covid patients. They said the government was ready with infrastructure and equipment to treat Covid patients.

The meeting observed that some individuals and media houses were running a false campaign creating confusion among people.

They expressed a doubt that there may be some conspiracy behind this malicious propaganda. They clarified that in Gandhi Hospital where there is a capacity to treat more than 2,000 patients, only 247 Covid patients are there. Some vested interests are spreading rumours that the Gandhi Hospital is overflowing with the Covid patients.

They said since some people have filed the PILs in the court, they were made to make rounds around the court and it was creating problems for them to offer medical services to the needy. They said it was not possible to conduct Covid tests on all those who died and the High Court”s direction in this regard cannot be implemented. They urged the state government to appeal in the Supreme Court.

The CM clarified that every individual should be cautious and should not worry unnecessarily about corona. He said there are no symptoms to many people who have the Corona, but a small number those who are having other diseases are falling seriously sick. The government is taking all measures to contain the virus. But yet the same time, people should follow personal hygiene, take the necessary precautions. The CM declared that even if the Corona virus cases are large in number, the government is ready to offer the treatment. He said according to ICMR guidelines, those patients who are in serious condition were treated in the hospitals, those asymptomatic patients are treated at home, the CM said.

Meanwhile, Telangana on Monday reported 92 Covid-19 positive cases, taking the state”s tally to 3,742. With five more fatalities, the death toll rose to 142.

Former Union minister and senior UP Congress leader Jitin Prasada has written a letter to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, urging him to declare a holiday on Parshuram Jayanti.

In his letter, Jitin Prasada, who has been leading a campaign against atrocities on the Brahmin community, said that Parshuram is revered as the Lord of Justice and is also seen as the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu.

He said that Parshuram is held in high esteem by the Brahmin community. Prasada has urged the chief minister to restore the holiday on Parshuram Jayanti.

Minor Girl rape

Hapur (UP), Aug 10 : A six-year-old girl, who was kidnapped and brutally raped in Hapur district on Thursday, remains in a critical condition even as the police continue to hunt for the accused.

The police have released three sketches of the accused on the basis of the statements of the girl’s parents and neighbours.

The girl was kidnapped from outside her home in the Garh Mukhteshwar area, reportedly by a man on a motorcycle.

The police launched a hunt for the girl after her parents lodged a missing complaint.

She was found the next morning, unconscious and soaked in blood, behind bushes not far from her village. The girl was rushed to a specialised hospital in Meerut where the medical examination confirmed rape.

She has already undergone one surgery and doctors say she is stable but not yet out of danger.

The doctors said that the girl was brutalised in a manner that is shockingly similar to the Nirbhaya gang rape case of 2012.

Dr S.K. Garg, the principal of the Meerut Medical College where the girl is admitted, said that she will need treatment for a long duration and more surgeries.

Hapur SP Sanjeev Suman said that they have not yet been able to record the victim’s statement because of her medical condition. He said that six police teams have been formed to arrest the accused.

Meanwhile, protests are being held by the Samajwadi Party and Congress over the incident.
