The Telangana government performed the best among the five southern States in a COVID -19 Performance Index developed by the Administrative Staff College (ASCI), FICCI and Federation of Telangana Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FTCCI). This was revealed in a study conducted by the trio. The infrastructure created for fighting against COVID, and others have been considered for deciding this. Director Health and Family Welfare Dr G Srinivas Rao informed that the State achieved testing one lakh samples per Million population.
He further said a challenge has been thrown to the people of Telangana in the name of ‘Who is Mask Maharaja’ to create greater awareness among them especially in the wake of winter and festivals season. He advised people as part of Jan Andolan to follow 4 step measures to prevent spread of Coronavirus – wearing a mask, observing 6 feet distance, hand sanitization and not to go near groups.
