The State Government has, meanwhile, strengthened the systems for surveillance of ILI (influenza-like illness) and SARI (severe acute respiratory infections). A person who shows symptoms like cold, cough, fever and sore throat has been advised to isolate himself and undergo Covid-19 tests. The concerned district-level surveillance units have been alerted to constantly monitor the situation.
