Number of discharged will go up: Maharashtra Health Minister
Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope, while addressing media persons on Friday said that 4,228 samples from the state have been tested for Covid-19 as of yet. Out of these, 4,017 have tested negative and 135 have tested positive. As many as 19 people who tested positive for the infection have been treated or discharged, added the health minister.
Rajesh Tope also said that some private clinics in the state have been closed due to Covid-19. "This is not right in the present situation. If doctors run away from responsibility who will common people look up to? I assure the police will cooperate. Apart from Covid, there are usual illnesses that need to be treated. I urge doctors to keep their clinics and hospitals open," the health minister appealed.
