KHAMMAM: Health Minister Eatala Rajender on Friday stated that it was negligence on part of the people that was leading to some Covid-19 deaths. It was neither the fault of the government nor the doctors if people with Covid symptoms waited till the last minute to rush to the hospital, he said.

He also visited the Covid lab and Covid-19 ward at Mamatha Medical College.Later speaking to media, the Minister said that the percentage of deaths was higher in Covid-19 patients aged over 60.

He asserted that the Telangana government stood third in providing health services to people across India.
