Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani has lauded the collective efforts put in by various departments in containing the spread of coronavirus in the state. In terms of tests per million population, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation has achieved 2,701 tests per million, which is the highest in the country, compared to 1,491.97 in the Union Territory of Delhi, 930.7 in Tamil Nadu, and 836.34 in Rajasthan. Surat too has achieved 1,750 tests per million, he said.

While India’s average test per million rate is 392.5, Gujarat has reported the average test per million rate of 721. During a media interaction, the CM expressed optimism about winning the battle against the virus as the departments further intensify their efforts.

Gujarat is among the states with the largest number of laboratories for testing coronavirus cases. “The state has proactively made arrangements to fight Covid-19. In the initial stage, we had 9,500 beds but now we are working to increase that capacity to 25,000. We do not have any problems as far as ventilators, N-95 masks and medicines are concerned as all these things items are manufactured in Gujarat,” Rupani said.
