Bhushan said the fort in Chhattisgarh is among the top ten districts where cases under Kovid-19 are high.
He said the ten districts with the highest number of cases were Pune, Mumbai, Thane, Nagpur, Nasik, Bangalore city, Aurangabad, Ahmednagar, Delhi and Durg.
He said states have been asked to increase the rate of RT-PCR investigations.
“We have recently told Maharashtra that mobile testing laboratories can be used in those areas where ICMR is assisting the state government for difficult areas,” he said.
Bhushan said, “Chhattisgarh is a matter of concern because despite being a small state with a small population, six per cent of the total cases of Kovid-19 are coming from here and three per cent of deaths are happening here.”
“If we look at Punjab, three per cent of the total new cases in the country are coming from here and 4.5 per cent of deaths in the country are happening here,” he said.
