Concerned about the increasing number of COVID-19 cases, the Telangana Health Department urged people to follow the guidelines of COVID-19. Dr. G. Srinivas Rao, the Director of the Telangana Health Department, warned the citizens of Telangana to be cautious about the second wave of COVID-19. He said, the second wave is more in intensity compared to the first wave of the Novel Coronavirus.
Dr. G. Srinivas Rao said in the last three months, people neglected wearing masks, maintaining social distance which led to the spike in the Novel Coronavirus Cases. He said, “If the cases rise further, there would be great pressure on the health department which can also cause a great loss to the public health.”
The Telangana Health Department said, if the people do not want another lockdown or night curfew, they should follow the COVID-19 guidelines.
