Telangana, Andhra Pradesh Coronavirus Live Updates: Centre will provide 1,200 ventilators to Telangana, says Union Minister G Kishan Reddy | Published: 12th July 2020 | Posted Date: Sunday 12th July 2020 05:05 PM

Telangana, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh Coronavirus News Live Updates: Union Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy on Sunday said that the Centre will provide 1200 ventilators to Telangana and requested the state government to increase coronavirus testing as he visited the state’s largest covid facility hospital.

After a deceased covid patient’s body was carried in an auto rickshaw by his relative without the assistance of any health authorities, Telangana’s director of Medical Education Dr. Ramesh Reddy has ordered a detailed enquiry into the handover of a covid positive body to relatives instead of following the standard protocol. He has also instructed Nizamabad Government Hospital’s superintendent to file criminal cases against staff members of the hospital involved in handling over the body.

The Telangana government has decided to form joint teams of officials to carry out inspections, among other measures, to check black marketing of oxygen cylinders. Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar Friday held a meeting with officials, including the police, on the supply of oxygen to hospitals.

As cases surge, Infectious Diseases specialists have blamed the Telangana government’s policy of not declaring containment zones, especially in Hyderabad. From July 1 to July 9 the number of cases increased by 14,607 cases and experts attributed the surge to low testing, and patients not adhering to isolation rules. As many as 1,278 new cases and eight deaths have taken the tally of positive cases in the state to 32,224 including 339 deaths.

Andhra Pradesh, on the other hand, reported a single-day high of 1,608 coronavirus cases on Friday, taking the overall tally past 25,000 to 25,422.
