Districts in which no new case has come up in 21 days are in the Green Zone. The districts where the number of cases is less than 10 and the number of positive patients are decreasing are placed in the orange zone. The list of districts will be updated weekly.

The nine Red Zone districts including capital Bhopal, the business capital Indore and a sizeable part of the west Madhya Pradesh and Jabalpur division would remain locked down.

Districts where corona infection is spreading and new patients are testing positive have been placed in the red zone.

The other districts in Red zone include Dhar, East Nimar, Barwani, Dewas and Gwalior.

Orange Zone – Khargone, Raisen, Hoshangabad, Ratlam, Agar Malwa, Mandsaur, Sagar, Shajapur, Chhindwara, Alirajpur, Tikamgarh, Shahdol, Sheopur, Dindori, Burhanpur, Harda, Betul, Vidisha and Morena. These districts can also join the green zone soon.

Khargone is a surprise inclusion in the zone as there has been as steady flow of positive cases through the past couple of weeks.

Green Zone – Rewa, Ashoknagar, Rajgarh, Shivpuri, Anuppur, Balaghat, Bhind, Chhatarpur, Damoh, Datia, Guna, Jhabua, Katni, Mandla, Narsinghpur, Neemuch, Panna, Satna, Sehore, Seoni, Sidhi, Umaria, Singrauli and Niwari.

The number of corona positive cases has continued to steadily rise in Indore. The confirmed cases touched the 1,513 mark in the city on Friday evening.

Four more died due to the virus till Friday evening taking the total to 72 so far. Health department authorities said 45 out of 72 patients who lost their lives were those who had various diseases including diabetes or blood pressure etc.

After the visit of the inter-ministerial Central Team, Indore has stepped up efforts to check the spread of the virus.

Principal Secretary of Medical Education Sanjay Shukla has asked the health department to conduct as many tests as possible.

In the review meeting, Shukla asked to work on medical infrastructure so that every kind of situation can be dealt with in future.

The 40 dead were aged between 50 and 70 years. The samples have been sent to the National Institute of Virology Pune to find out why there was a fatal spread of the disease.

The doctors felt the virus has mutated and has become more virulent raising fatalities. More than 60 per cent cases were asymptomatic.

They showed no primary symptoms like sneezing or coughing nor did they have a contact history. Eighty per cent of 1,485 did not show a serious effect of the disease. The average age of patients found in the city is around 57 years.

The high risk group was more vulnerable. This includes children younger than 5 years, pregnant women, the elderly and the sick.

According to CMHO Dr. Praveen Jadia, if the patient is suffering from another disease his immunity is compromised.


Video clips punch holes in STF theory of encounter

Another video clip that casts a shadow on the police account of the encounter is one in which Vikas Dubey is brought to the hospital with blood smeared over his chest.




Vikas Dubey

Kanpur, July 10 : Videos of events that led to the encounter of gangster Vikas Dubey are contradicting the claims made by the Special Task Force (STF) that he was shot dead on Friday morning when he tried to escape.

Vikas Dubey was wanted for the massacre of eight policemen in Bikru village on July 3 and was being brought o Kanpur from Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh from where he was taken into custody on Thursday.

The UP Police said that the car in which Vikas Dubey was travelling overturned and he and other policemen were injured. The criminal snatched a gun from an injured cop and tried to escape, the police said. He was surrounded and asked to surrender but he opened fire, forcing retaliatory shooting in which he was killed.

A video of the three cars crossing a toll booth at around 4 a.m. shows that Vikas Dubey was in a different car — not the one that is seen tipped on its side after the accident on the highway 30 km from Kanpur.

There is no comment yet from the police on the mysterious car switch.

Another video taken at around 6.30 a.m., just half an hour before the encounter, shows media cars chasing the convoy being stopped.

When mediapersons questioned the SSP, Kanpur, on being stopped, the officer chose not to respond.

An eyewitness said that he had heard gunshots in the area but the police asked them to leave.

“We heard sounds of gunshots. When we came here, we were sent away. There was no accident at that time,” Ashish Paswan, a passer-by, told reporters.

Another video clip that casts a shadow on the police account of the encounter is one in which Vikas Dubey is brought to the hospital with blood smeared over his chest.

The police said that he ran on wet mud since it was raining at that time, and fell after being shot at. However, there was no mud on his clothes and his trousers were absolutely clean.

Akhilesh Yadav

Lucknow/New Delhi, July 10 : The opposition parties on Friday slammed the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter of dreaded gangster Vikas Dubey, while being brought back to the state from Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Manoj Kumar Jha also criticised the Uttar Pradesh government over the encounter saying the “black truth” of the entire “syndicate” has also been “encountered” along with Dubey. “If the news of the Vikas Dubey death in the encounter is true, then accept that the black truth of the entire syndicate has also been encountered. The system has saved itself from being naked. How the story is so simple from yesterday”s visuals of Mahakal temple to the story till today morning. Proceed with this as the final truth (sic),” Jha tweeted.

According to reports, as the convoy bringing Dubey from Madhya Pradesh”s Ujjain reached the Bhauti area under the Barra police circle in Kanpur on Friday morning, the vehicle in which Vikas was seated, overturned after skidding on the road due to heavy rain.
