Gyms, Theatres, Multiplexes to open
Addressing the team constituted for Covid-19 management in the state, Yogi Adityanath said, "The business of cinema hall operators has been affected due to Covid-19. Their needs and problems should be considered sympathetically."
Moreover, Yogi Adityanath recommended setting up "Health ATMs" across several Uttar Pradesh villages and metropolitan area.
People can get their blood pressure, pulse rate, body mass index, body fat, height, body temperature, and oxygen level and other parameters checked at these "Health ATMs".
"In efforts to provide better health facilities to the people of the state, setting up of "Health ATMs" in villages, small towns and metropolitan areas should be considered," Yogi Adityanath said.
Health workers and technicians will be trained to operate these "Health ATMS". Yogi Adityanath said a detailed action plan in this regard should be prepared at the earliest.
