Home Minister Narottam Mishra on Tuesday said that the government has made all its efforts in containing the virus. "We cannot hold lockdown for long time. This is affecting the economy and the life of the common man. Therefore we have eased the lockdown. It is now in the hands of the public that they somehow protect themselves from this infection."

The Home Minister, in talk with the media, said, "The government has made hospitals, treatment, ventilators, medicines and other facilities free. But we pray that people should not need it. Caution can only prevent this disease. Therefore, people should adopt for themselves every possible way of safety.

When asked about the health of CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, he said he is doing completely fine. "His third report has also come positive. Therefore, he will remain in the hospital till he turns out to be negative. The Chief Minister will also hold a virtual cabinet meeting at 4 pm today from the hospital itself."
