The virus has weakened, not gone The situation of Kovid infection in the state is under control. The situation is returning to normal, but we have to understand that the virus has weakened, not gone.

The process of setting up PICUs of 100 beds each in all medical colleges should be completed expeditiously. It should also have a 50 bed NICU. Similarly, Mini Pikus are being set up at District Hospital and CHC level also. It should be inspected by the ministers in charge.
