Bhopal: Amid rising corona cases in Madhya Pradesh, Health Minister Prabhuram Chaudhary has admitted that "we have not been able to assess the situation in advance. We had no idea that the second wave of corona would be so frightening." Recently, Minister Prabhuram Chaudhary visited Ujjain. During this time, he took stock of the situation in Corona.

Meanwhile, he held a meeting with officials including Ujjain Collector. After the meeting, Dr. Prabhuram Chaudhary, Minister of Public Health and Family Welfare said, "We could not assess the situation and the corona epidemic spread so fast.  Although cases are being worked out now.  It is a matter of happiness that the positivity rate which has reached 25 in the state has now come down to 9.'' The  higher education minister Mohan Yadav, MLA Paras Jain were also present at the minister's meeting. Health Minister Prabhuram Chaudhary also gave his views on the death figures in the state. He said, "The government has not concealed the death figure and will hide it. The bodies of those killed due to other reasons are also reaching the crematorium. Therefore, the death toll is high.''

At the same time, chief minister Shivraj Singh announced last Monday that covid-19 compassionate appointment will start in the state and a special grace scheme will also be launched in the state. After the implementation of compassionate appointment in the State, one member from the family of the State employees who died of corona virus will be given a job.
