COVID-19 is Not a Cricket Match, Says Bagchi

Bhubaneswar: During the extraordinary situation like COVID-19 pandemic situation, one should not expect every detail like a ball-by-ball analysis like that of twenty-twenty or one-day cricket matches, said Odisha Government’s Chief Spokesperson on COVID-19 Subroto Bagchi today.

“COVID-19 is a war. It is neither an IPL nor an one-dayer. We request media persons not to go after each and every case seeking details,” he said.

The Government will provide correct information at right time and the government is committed to that, Bagachi said while adding that it’s impossible to provide the information about an incident as it happened.

Referring to a question raised a journalist, Bagchi said, “When the details are required in keeping in view larger interest, the same will be provided by the government. There is no need to criticize that,” he said.

Raising fingers at media he said, “We have to be careful now. It’s not time to park OB van in front of COVID hospital and testing lab.”
