Regularly monitoring COVID-19 situation in Hry: Khattar


DW BUREAU Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday said he has been regularly monitoring the COVID-19 situation in the state and there has been no significant jump in cases. He also said authorities are alert in the wake of the new Covid-19 variant 'Omicron' reported in some countries. Asked if any advisory has been issued following the detection of Omicron, Khattar said the state's 'Mahamari Alert-Surakshit Haryana' is already in place, under which relaxations are either given or curtailed from time to time depending on the prevailing COVID-19 situation. The state government has termed the lockdown 'Mahamari Alert-Surakshit Haryana (Epidemic Alert-Safe Haryana)'. The restrictions were imposed on May 3, 2021, and subsequently extended from time to time. The curbs have been extended till December 31. "We have issued a Mahamari alert... We received several suggestions on giving further relaxations, but we haven't because of the new variant," Khattar told the media here. He said the deputy commissioners of districts have been authorised to give permissions for melas and large gatherings, including the annual Gita Mahotsav in Kurukshetra next month, after ensuring precautions and COVID-19 protocols.
