A top Telangana health official requests the information technology companies in the state to reopen their offices.
Telangana’s Director of Public Health Dr G. Srinivasa Rao appealed to the companies by saying that they don't need any apprehensions about Covid-19. He said that the management of the IT companies should resume work from offices as soon as possible as lakhs of families are directly and indirectly dependent on them.
He appealed as more than 90 per cent employees of those companies in the state have continued to work from homes for over one and a half years now.
The health official said as the staff and their families are vaccinated and Covid cases are also low in the state, the companies should have no problems with opening the offices.
He pointed out that a third wave can happen only if a new and more powerful variant of SARS-CoV-2 emerges which so far seems unlikely as there has been no evidence of such a surge in the state. He pointed out that the state has eased Covid-19 restrictions more than three months ago and no major indication of any upcoming major surge is found.
Rao said that the employees should follow covid appropriate behaviour like wearing masks, maintaining social distancing and washing hands is enough to tackle covid.
The schools in the state have reopened and the attendance numbers are rising.
The state government is taking enough steps to make sure that everyone is vaccinated and the Covid-19 remains in control in the state.
