BHOPAL (Madhya Pradesh): Despite having no air travel connectivity, the districts are now reporting higher number of Covid cases, according to state health bulletin. Doctors have attributed it to fast spreading tendency of coronavirus and increase in numbers of tests in their districts.

The districts, which do not have direct air travel connectivity, reported nominal Covid cases earlier. Of late, they are reporting much high Covid cases in Madhya Pradesh.

Bhopal, Indore, Gwalior, Jabalpur, Sagar, Ujjain are corona hotspots in the state. But things seem to be changing now.

Former medical superintendent of Hamidia Hospital Dr ID Chaurasia said, ìThose districts, which do not have direct air travel connectivity, are now reporting much higher cases because the virus infection seems to be spreading fast.

Shahdol civil surgeon Dr GS Parihar said, ìVirus is spreading fast. Another reason is that we have increased testing. These may be the reasons why Shahdol has reported more number of Covid cases.î
