Dr Dinesh Kharadi, CMHO Udaipur has expressed concern over the sudden rise in cases over the last 72 hours. A total of 133 cases in the last three days has lead the CMHO to address this concern.
He said that with the festival weekend commencing tomorrow (Eid Al Adha - 1 August; Raksha Bandhan - 3 August), the public interaction may lead to increased number of cases. In case this happens, then the CMHO will recommend implementing a lockdown in the district to ward off the exponential increase.
Dr Dinesh Kharade has requested the residents of Udaipur district to observe maximum possible social distancing during the festival time to ensure that close contact infection is not spread exponentially. He said that an asymptomatic individual may not be aware that he or she is infected and may spread the infection to others, causing a multiplier effect.
Statistics show that the average number of cases per day in July have matched the average number of cases in May, when the strict nationwide lockdown was in place. The lockdown is no longer in place and this will possibly lead to a higher number of cases. Though the recovery rate is well within control, the addition of more symptomatic cases makes the danger more apparent.
