AGENCIES, Raipur: Crisis brings out innovation among people. Remote tribal hamlets in Chhattisgarh’s Bastar have taken their own steps to ensure the safety of their communities during the coronavirus outbreak by making personal protective equipment such as masks from palm leaves, reported NDTV.
They are also not stepping out from their homes. The 21-day lockdown is being implemented by the locals in many villages.
Two more people have tested positive for coronavirus in Chhattisgarh, taking the total number of confirmed cases in the state to three. One of them was reported from the state capital Raipur and the other from Rajnandgaon district.
A 24-year-old woman, who had returned to Raipur from London, was the first confirmed case of coronavirus in the state last week.
In the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the Chhattisgarh government has set up 24×7 control rooms with dedicated helplines, in all the 28 districts of the state, including capital Raipur.
