Also, the state has become number one in the country in pool testing of Corona.
He reiterated that the training for doctors and other health staff should be continued in order to sensitise them about prevention from medical infection.

Similarly, the dialogue with Medical Colleges Principals and Deputy CMOs should also be regular.
The Chief Minister said that adequate number of PPE kits and N-95 masks should be ensured in all the districts. He directed that the committee of concerning DM and CMO will permit the emergency services in the private hospitals. This committee will ascertain that all the precautionary measures have been taken for prevention of medical infection before resuming emergency services.
The Chief Minister said that for hotspot areas, an effective strategy should be implemented. Door step delivery and supply chain mechanism should be strengthened. He said the quarantine centres and shelter homes should have all the facilities while the geo-tagging of quarantine centres should be expedited.
The Chief Minister also directed to screen all the persons who return from abroad and should be sent to medical treatment if required. He directed the senior officers to personally monitor and ensure that the Lockdown is followed as per the existing guidelines.
He also pointed out that summer and rainy season invites many infectious diseases. In view of this, a special drive to control malaria, dengue and other infectious diseases should be executed, he said. The departments of Health, Medical Education, Rural Development, Urban Development, Panchayati Raj, Child Development and Women Development should prepare an integrated action plan in this regard, he further directed.
