Patiala, August 7
Warning residents to take the disease seriously and follow precautions, experts have projected coronavirus to peak in the district by mid-September. They said the next 30 days would be crucial for the district.
“In the wake of health officials, including doctors, falling prey to the disease, the situation might get out of hand if people don’t take precautions,” said experts.
The Patiala Civil Surgeon, Dr Harish Malhotra, said there was a substantial rise in daily count of Covid-19 cases. “The peak stage of the coronavirus is expected next month. I appeal to people to strictly follow the guidelines to limit damage,” he added.
“Community participation, which is must to fight the virus, is lacking as people continue to flout the guidelines. We will be helpless if people don’t take precautions,” he said.
The District Epidemiologist, Dr Sumeet Singh, said coronavirus cases were rising and daily count would reach maximum by mid September. “The trend we are witnessing predicts that cases will touch peak in mid September. The caseload has already increased with daily count touching 100 cases per day,” he added.
“The strategy is to limit the caseload as much as possible. Otherwise, the situation will get out of hands,” he explained. — TNS
