The Andhra Pradesh government has taken several key decisions on the Covid-19 situation in the state. The cabinet subcommittee met this morning and decided to extend the curfew till month ending.
Based on the curfew till date, the ministers observed the data from the officials and decided to prolong the curfew. They also have received CM Jagan’s inputs that the Covid-19 is severe in rural places and in order to bring down its influence, the curfew should be for at least four weeks. With suggestions coming from the CM and the subcommittee also discussed about the growing positivity rate in the state.
In recent days there were cases of ‘Black Fungus’ too and the subcommittee had a work about this as well. Regarding the same, Jagan government issued key orders to include ‘Black Fungus’ treatment in Aarogyasri too.
Probably AP government is the first in the country to include ‘Black Fungus’ treatment in the Aarogyasri which is an insurance scheme applicable for all the BPL beneficiaries.
Apart from this AP government would also provide financial assistance of Rs 15,000 for cremating the Covid-19 deceased.
