“We will not let anyone toy with human lives. We have identified 57 foreign Jamaatis. They came on tourist visa and moved around without informing anyone while being carriers. So, their passports have been seized and they are being blacklisted,” Chouhan added further.
He also added that it’s important to save lives so health staff went back to those areas. “I’d like to appeal to people to not toy with their own lives. If one becomes a carrier, then he will affect many others. We took strict action against such people. We invoked National Security Act (NSA),” he said.
He also urged people to come forward by themselves to disclose their information anout COVID-19 infection. “There was lack of cooperation. You will see this issue in some specific areas in Indore. People also create problems to see that the health staff can’t go in there,” he said.
However, he reiterated that no function, large or small, should be held anywhere in the state. He said that if someone organises such functions or obstructs the medical procedure, then FIR will be registered against them and they will be sent to jail.
The development comes as the number of coronavirus cases in Madhya Pradesh rose to more than 150. Of all this, Indore alone accounts for 112 cases. Ten people have tested positive for coronavirus in Morena district. So far five deaths of COVID-19 patients have been reported from Indore, two in Ujjain and one in Khargone, taking the total to 13.
