Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Sunday directed officials to strengthen Covid-19 prevention measures and ramp up coronavirus tests in the state.

Efforts should be made to achieve the Covid-19 testing target of 20,000 per day at the earliest and ramp it further to 25,000 per day, Adityanath said while addressing a meeting at his official residence on Sunday.

Covid-19 protocols should be adopted by all helpline services, including those under the '1090 women power-line' and the '108 ambulance service', he said, adding that frontline workers should get personal protective equipment such as gloves and sanitisers.
