Corona cases are on the rise in Telangana. On Wednesday alone, the state registered almost 8,000 cases which created fear among people and authorities. In this context, a fake Telangana Government Order claiming partial lockdown has gone viral on social media.
Dismissing the rumour, the Director of Public Health Dr G Srinivasa Rao has clarified saying that the Health Department had not recommended imposing a lockdown in the state.
“The State Health Department has not given any such recommendations, as claimed in social media posts. All such claims are fake. At present, the Covid cases are not rising in Telangana and they have hit a plateau,” he said.
He urged people to continue to follow Covid-19 precautions. He assured that if people follow rules, the virus will be in control within the next three to four weeks. So there are no thoughts of a lockdown, Srinivasa Rao added.
