UP: Viral fever cases reported in Firozabad; CM Yogi Adityanath removes CMO  

The Uttar Pradesh government has sprung into action after at least 50 children have died due to viral fever in Firozabad. Acting tough, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has even removed the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of the district and issued necessary guidelines to the administration.

The Chief Minister, who is monitoring the situation himself, ordered the Health Department to keep a round-the-clock watch on Firozabad and has also ordered to increase beds in Government Medical College Hospital. 

In view of the increasing viral fever cases in the districts, the CM has also ordered to run surveillance and awareness program in the state from September 7 to 16, in which health workers would go door-to-door and identify those with fever and Covid symptoms. The Chief Minister has also given instructions to urban and rural bodies to clean the area.

The CM has also instructed to send a team of 11 specialist doctors to Firozabad.

ICMR’s 11-member team has also reached Firozabad and examined the samples and have concluded that there were no traces of coronavirus.

The children who are admitted to the medical college are getting free medical treatment, as per the orders of the Chief Minister.
