He called for further strengthening treatment facilities in Lucknow, Kanpur Nagar, Varanasi and Meerut to improve the Covid-19 recovery rate, adding that testing activities should continue along with effective surveillance.

Adityanath instructed the medical and health departments to remain alert during the festive season and activate emergency services in medical colleges, district hospitals, primary health centres and community health centres.
