Bhopal , 03 June. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan claimed on Thursday that now no district of the state is in the Red Zone in terms of Covid infection. Not a single district has the positivity rate above 5% and it appears that the state is rapidly coming out of the Corona pandemic.
All the ministers-in-charge and in-charge officers of Covid should keep a close watch on the unlock process in their respective districts and ensure Covid compliant behavior, the CM said.

Other districts should also follow this.
