Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh


Keeping in view the rapid rise in the number of Omicron cases, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed state government officials to make the facility of Genome Sequencing available at major medical institutions of Gorakhpur, Jhansi, Ghaziabad and SGPGI, Lucknow.

While addressing a high-level meeting, Yogi said, “Genome sequencing is being done in many institutions of the state for accurate identification of COVID-19 variants. Seeing the rise in cases, it is necessary to increase the means of genome sequencing.”

Ordering his officials to make sure citizens are constantly made aware of the preventive measures, the CM said, “Situation in all the districts is being monitored. Precaution is the best first aid measure, therefore, people should follow the mantra of SMS (sanitization, mask and social distancing).” He also urged people not to panic unnecessarily over the situation and directed the officials to provide correct and proper information regarding the situation.


Directing not to allow anyone without screening and sanitisation, the CM stated that the COVID-19 help desk should be made functional with immediate effect in all government, semi-government, private, trust, institutions, companies, educational institutions, offices, and industrial units of the state. Daycare centers should also be established as per the need.
