Samajwadi Party supremo and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav took to social media to attack the Yogi government on testing of coronavirus patients. In his tweet in Hindi Akhilesh Yadav claimed that the Uttar Pradesh government is avoiding COVID tests, thus making it difficult to assess the current situation in the state.
As a result of this, it is also difficult to assess when the disease will reach its peak in Uttar Pradesh, he said on Twitter.
“Uttar Pradesh is suffering from a law and order problem besides coronavirus. As corona tests are being deferred, the exact situation is unknown, and it is difficult to assess when the disease will reach its peak,” Yadav said in a tweet in Hindi. “The government should disclose how it will prepare to fight the disease when it peaks,” he added.
Meanwhile, the COVID-19 death toll in Uttar Pradesh reached 672 with 12 more fatalities reported on Monday, while the total number of cases in the state stood at 22,828.
