G Kishan Reddy said that if there was a shortage of funds, the state government should use advance money
HYDERABAD: Union minister of state for home affairs G Kishan Reddy on Sunday said the state government should openly tell the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths. Speaking to reporters after his visit to the Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences (TIMS), Kishan Reddy claimed that there was not shortage of testing kits, oxygen or medicines in government hospitals.
The Union minister of state went on to say that instead of criticising the Union government, the Telangana government should focus on curbing the spread of infection and arranging treatment facilities for people. “Some people, despite testing positive (for Covid-19), are going around by wearing masks. Action should be taken against such people,” he said.
Kishan Reddy said that if there was a shortage of funds, the state government should use advance money. He also highlighted that there was a need to recruit more staff at the TIMS hospital. “There are 100 ventilator beds vacant in the hospital,” he claimed.
