Chairing a review meeting, Khattar asked all the Deputy Commissioners to increase number of children wards across the state, in advance.
Amid a marked decrease in cases of fresh infections in Haryana — the state Thursday recorded 980 fresh cases and 71 deaths — Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar asked officials to ramp up the infrastructure for the expected third wave of Covid-19.
“Though a downtrend in the number of daily active cases is being seen but still Covid appropriate behaviour should be followed religiously. The DCs have also been directed to remain vigilant for the expected possibility of a third wave. If the need of making additional arrangement of beds and rooms is felt at Community Health Centre levels, then the works regarding this should be completed at the earliest,” Chief Minister Khattar said.
