Ujjain: Despite imposition of Janta Curfew every seventh person undergoing the test is testing positive for corona.

It was believed that enforcement of Janta Curfew will lead to a decrease in the number of patients during the second wave of corona.

According to the health bulletin, out of 1,791 samples, 270 patients tested positive. This amounts to a positivity rate of 15 per cent.

Meanwhile, for the reasons of the state the Covid-19 Bulletin of the Health Department and that of the Police is throwing up different number on deaths due to corona. Mind begs the question, is administration hiding deaths due to corona?The Bulletin released by Health Department late night on May 13 reported two deaths from Covid-19 infection. While the Ujjain police is examining patients daily in the urban areas living in home isolation. The investigation is also carried out on May 13 in five CSP circles. A bulletin issued after the investigation states that four people have died due to Covid-19 infection. According to the bulletin, three persons in Madhav Nagar CSP circle and 1 in Central Kotwali CSP circle died during home isolation. The anomaly in reporting of deaths is incomprehensible for now.
