Chattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has targeted the central government over the rising outbreak of Coronavirus. He said that those who came from abroad were not investigated and separated, which led to increase in the number of cases in the country. If this could have been done, the virus would not have spread in the country.
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has warned that symptoms appear too late in many patients of Kovid-19 and that is why rapid testing is needed to stop the virus.
When asked about the reason for low number of cases in the state, he replied that Chattisgarh has started preparing well in advance when Congress leader Rahul Gandhi took up the issue.
