The new beds will be inaugurated within the next two weeks, the minister hoped.

“No matter how many new beds are installed, Coronavirus won’t be controlled if people neglect the health guidelines,” he said.

In many places people are creating agitation seeking withdrawal of lockdown, Maleque said, adding that in the present moment lockdown was mandatory so the government decided for it.

“The government will withdraw it at the right time, if we don’t maintain the government directive now, Covid-19 infection and fatalities both might go beyond any control in the future,” the health minister added.
