At an all-party meet held on Saturday, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren said that the testing will be ramped up in the next 15 days in the state. He also added that the government has ordered to establish 50 oxygen-supported beds in every district and is working towards catering to the increased need. Meanwhile, both the BJP and Congress stressed on imposing some restrictions to curb the coronavirus infection.

During the meeting, Jharkhand Pradesh Congress Committee President and Food and Finance Minister Rameshwar Oraon suggested that the results of the tests be delivered sooner—as opposed to an average time of seven days which is demoralising the people. He asked the CM to work on social lockdown like regulated assembly on marriages, religious functions among others.
