The number of active corona patients in all these districts is more than 600.
On the other hand, CM Yogi Adityanath expressed displeasure over negligence on the part of people during the relaxation of corona curfew in most districts of the state. He said that this exemption does not mean exemption of 'negligence'. A state government spokesperson said CM Yogi told the Team-9 meeting that, "Exemption from corona curfew does not mean exemption of negligence. In many districts, information has been received such as not wearing masks, unnecessary rush in markets, non-compliance of social distation. This situation is not good for anyone".
