Prevention is better than cure

He also ordered to conduct awareness drives to encourage COVID-appropriate behaviours, to restrict infection spread.

According to a government spokesperson, the Chief Minister said, "The state with a population of 25 crores could control the pandemic because of better teamwork. Now, most of the districts are not reporting any fresh Covid cases." Likewise, necessary safety provisions should also be undertaken ahead of the anticipated third wave.

"UP has proved that be it the Covid-19 pandemic or any other challenge, if efforts are done with the spirit of collective endeavour and responsibly, then it does not take time to achieve positive results", the spokesperson informed.

Vaccination defence against COVID-19

The government spokesperson added that the vaccination drive is set to accelerate further in UP by force of the Central government's free jab policy. As per reports, from today onwards, the Union will be supplying free vials to the states to innoculate the 18+ age group.

"So far, the state has administered a total of 2.56 crore doses of the (Covid-19) vaccine. Among them, 40.23 lakh people in the state got both their doses while 1.47 lakh doses were administered to the youth," he added.
