Bhubaneswar, May 13: The number of daily Covid cases has declined slightly. The infection graph is currently on a flattening mode. Now, the daily number is hovering about 10,000 against over 12,000 reported in the State five days back. People should strictly observe Covid safety protocols, advised Capital Hospital Director Dr Laxmidhar Sahoo.
Regarding infection in villages, Dr Sahoo said, “Villagers are travelling to and fro cities. Villagers are also organising festivals with small gatherings also. Most of them are not following Covid guidelines.”
Dr Sahoo said the Government may be forced to extend lockdown restrictions from May 19 if no improvement is marked in the Covid situation in the State despite attempts.
It may be noted that Dr Sahoo had earlier calculated that daily Covid number will start declining from May 14.
