Shahbaz Sheikh, Ahmedabad: Congress MLA Imran Khedawala has said that given the rise in Covid19 cases in Ahmedabad, the city is just a week or 10 days away from being the new Wuhan. Khedawala, who himself had been found positive for coronavirus and had been successfully treated for the disease said that the rate at which the new cases are being reported in the state, it should not be a surprise if in the next seven to 10 days the Covid19 figures rise by over 2ooo cases per day.
Khedawala who talked to Gujarat Exclusive said that at present the situation in Ahmedabad is very bad and has appealed to people to follow the rules so as to help curb the spread of the disease. It should be noted that Ahmedabad has the highest number of corona cases in the state and is the only district with over 4,700 cases.
Khedawala also blamed the casual attitude of the citizens towards the pandemic and said that they were still not taking the lockdown seriously. He said that the citizens still operated with the mentality that stepping out of the home for 10 minutes to buy fruits and vegetables did not make them susceptible to the virus.
