Oximeters, thermal scanner in gaushalas for staff, not cows: UP government
Sections of the media reported that the government of CM Yogi Adityanath had directed officials to equip cow shelters in the state with thermal scanners and oximeters.
Instructions have been given to every cow shelter (gaushala) to adhere to COVID19 restrictions. Usage of masks and thermal screening have been made mandatory. According to reports, there are over 5,268 cow protection centres in the state where around 5,73,417 cows are being taken care of.
A lot of users on Twitter have expressed shock over this new development, considering how the people in Uttar Pradesh are severely struggling with COVID19, and how people are dying in thousands because of the lack of resources.
Amidst this, having help desks and facilities such as these for cows, while humans are facing the brunt of the pandemic is something that netizens are finding difficult to come to terms with.
Here is how they reacted:
Uttar Pradesh, on Tuesday, reported 25,858 new cases and 352 fatalities.
