Telangana Covid 19 News: Covid second wave over in Telangana; Health department | Hyderabad News – Times of India

HYDERABAD: State health authorities have declared that the second wave of Covid-19 has come to an end in Telangana.
The officials said that the time is right to reopen schools and colleges. While the government is also thinking on these lines and will take a decision soon, it has been proposed that only vaccinated staff will be allowed.
“We will ensure that Covid-19 tests are conducted regularly,” said state director of public health, Dr G Srinivasa Rao, adding that, in future only vaccinated persons will be allowed inside malls, cinema halls and other public spaces.
Health officials said that case positivity rate has come down to 0.5 per cent while the R-factor is now at 0.7. They have, however, warned that despite the number of cases being under control, people should not let their guard down and seek timely medical attention in case of illness.
“With seasonal fevers (like) dengue and malaria on the rise, people should not delay treatment at all. Covid appropriate behaviour should be maintained and people should get themselves vaccinated at the earliest,” the director of public health said.
The director of public health also informed that 85 per cent within GHMC limits and 100 per cent in Hyderabad, have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
