Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath on May 08 said despite being the most populous state of the country, UP is fighting coronavirus effectively. "I inspected integrated COVID Control Center in Bareily. Since last week 2800 active cases have reduced in this zone. It was predicted that UP will see 1 lakh positive cases per day from May 5 but as on May 8 we reported 26,000 cases. It means our COVID strategy and management is successful. From April 30 we're seeing decline in cases and we also started special screening and testing in villages," CM added while addressing a press conference in Bareilly.
