Gujarat govt hiding COVID-19 figures: Amit Chavda

GANDHINAGER, WNS: Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) president Amit Chavda on Wednesday visited two COVID-19 facilities in Surat.


The city has been recording a surge in COVID-19 cases for some time now.

Chavda said that hospitals in the state lack adequate facilities. 

“The government is not serious about fighting COVID-19. They are hiding the actual figures,” said Chavda.

Chavda also held meetings with officials of SMIMER Hospital and New Civil Hospital in the city. 

Both are COVID-19 facilities.

“The staff at the hospital is providing excellent service,” he said. 

Chavda said he interacted with the patients and it is obvious that they are not being given adequate facilities.

“Surat is turning into Wuhan. We also lack enough supply of injections to fight the disease and this is why black marketing of Ramdesivir is on the rise.” 

“This is why patients have to source the injection privately,” said Chavda.


“The inefficiency of the government is forcing people to seek treatment in private hospitals,” he said.

The state Congress chief said that Gujarat should have increased the testing at the very beginning and that could have helped prevent the surge.
