Dimapur, March 29 (EMN): The department of Health and Family Welfare has distributed 740 personal protective equipment, in total, to all the 11 districts: 200 for Kohima; 100 for Dimapur; 90 each to Mokokchung and Mon; 50 to Wokha; 40 each to Tuensang, Phek and Zunheboto; and 30 each to Kiphire, Peren and Longleng, according to an update provided by Home Commissioner Abhijit Sinha on Sunday.

The rest of the stock has been kept at the state headquarters, he informed. Also, the department has kept ready 133 ambulances for emergency, pooled in from the churches, paramilitary, NGOs, private hospitals and the government.

Sinha informed that 3982 persons have self-reported to the respective district surveillance teams and are under home quarantine. Out of which, 3590 are presently under home quarantine and 392 have completed the quarantine period, he added.

A total of 1523 persons has self-registered in the app that was launched by the chief minister on March 28, he informed.

Sinha requested the remaining 312 persons who have not completed their full details to submit and be a part of the fight against Covid-19. He further requested those who have entered Nagaland after March 6 to self-register in the app.

Out of 22 samples sent for testing, 17 have returned negative and results of five are awaited, according to the home commissioner.

He stated that the availability of the essential commodities and goods across the state continues to be normal. ‘Reports are being received from the districts on a daily basis. The PDS food grains in the state are also sufficient, which would be enough to last three-and-a-half months,’ he said.

Sinha also informed that a state-level control room during Covid-19 lockdown has been set up, whose numbers are 0370-2291122 and 0370-2291120. Any person in the state with grievances due to the lockdown measures—or even those from Nagaland, who is outside the state and is stranded or facing hardships because of the lockdown—may call those numbers.

He appealed to the public to continue to strictly adhere to the directives issued and stay at home.
