In Uttarakhand, if the pace of corona infection does not stop and the patient continues to grow, people may have to face some restrictions at other places including Rajdhani Doon. This includes options such as night curfews, along with limiting the number of participants to a public function. In fact, there has been a huge increase in corona infection in the state for the last two weeks and six to seven hundred new patients are coming out in a single day. The worst situation is in the capital Dehradun where more than three hundred patients have been found in a single day.

Different states have started imposing various restrictions as the infection progresses in many states of the country. In view of this, now the state government is also under pressure to take tough measures to prevent infection. Sources said that it has been decided to keep an eye on the status of infection in the state for the next one or two days and after that some drastic steps can be taken. However, the matter will first be discussed at a higher level and the decision will be taken only after getting the green signal. Let us know that 1109 new corona patients were found in Uttarakhand on Wednesday and five infected people died.

Most of the patients have been found in Dehradun and Haridwar district, due to which the tension of the government has increased. With this, the total number of patients in the state has reached 104711. While the death toll is 1741. According to the Health Bulletin issued by the Health Department, on Wednesday, 505 new patients have been found in Dehradun district alone. While 308 new patients have been found in Haridwar. Apart from this, 113 patients have been found in Nainital, 84 in US city, three in Almora, one in Chamoli, five in Champawat, 57 in Pauri, 10 in Rudraprayag, 19 in Tehri.

While no new patients have been found in Uttarkashi, Pithoragarh and Bageshwar. On Wednesday, one in AIIMS Rishikesh, two in Sri Mahant Indresh Hospital, one in Himalayan Hospital while one infected patient admitted in Synergy Hospital died. 88 patients admitted to various hospitals of the state were discharged from the hospitals after treatment. With this, the number of patients yet to be cured in the state has risen to 96735. While the number of active patients has increased to 4526.

The danger of spreading the infection on the mountain 

is deteriorating rapidly in Dehradun. In such a situation, if the infection is not possible, then the infection from Dehradun is now in danger of spreading to other districts as well. In such a situation, a ban coming from Uttarakhand from 12 states may be considered to be imposed within the state as well. However, this decision is expected to be taken only if the infection situation worsens greatly.  

The number of patients in the state is increasing rapidly. Several measures are being taken to ensure that the infection does not grow. The police have also been asked to strictly adhere to those not complying with the Kovid standards. If people still do not care and the situation gets worse then strict steps may also have to be taken.
