Rajasthan Chief Minister, Ashok Gehlot on fighting the Coronavirus Outbreak in his state
- I am taking care, trying to be careful about keeping physical distance. We know that every country that has taken this virus seriously and has prepared for it has been able to control it

- We have taken a 'curfew' approach. Curfew is imposed in all districts and we are increasing the number of testing

- We are trying to do contact tracing as much as possible and especially focussing on people coming from foreign countries

- We are trying to bring everyone together, all parties, all religion, all people in this fight against the pandemic

- Bhilwara is a case study in itself. It was becoming a hotspot of the virus but we have taken containment measure and cluster monitoring took place. 3,000 teams were deployed for this. 

- We started shutting down public places, temples and other places even before the lockdown was announced by the centre. 

- The withdrawal of the lockdown will take place in coordination with the Centre. We need to take each step extremely carefully. Both the state and central government need to take many aspects of transmission into consideration.
