Peter Lichamo speaks at the Covid-19 awareness campaign and free face mask distribution drive in Zunheboto town on Thursday.

Dimapur, Sep. 17 (EMN): We are now aware of the pandemic and are getting adapted to it, but, our adaptation could lead us to complacency in many ways, which would be catastrophic, said Deputy Commissioner (DC) of Zunheboto Peter Lichamo.

The DC was speaking at a Covid-19 awareness campaign and free face mask distribution drive, organised by the Zunheboto Area Public Organisation (Zapo) to sensitise the general public of dos and don’ts about the ongoing pandemic on Thursday at centre point in Zunheboto, an update from DIPR informed.

Lichamo also reminded that the lockdown has been relaxed due to the current economic scenario and not because of the virus is easing or over.

“Let us all try to avoid and minimise the spread of the pandemic at our place by continuing to follow the basic precautions,” he added.

He also lauded the efforts undertaken by Zapo in organising the event besides undertaking other developmental activities, which is visible in the town.

Speaking on Covid-19 preventive measures, the district chief medical officer, Dr. K Akaho Sema, appraised the gathering about the pandemic situation in the district and the state as a whole.

Now, with the relaxation of lockdown measures, ‘we should be more careful and our acts should be of a responsible citizen to avoid community spread,’ he said.

The programme was attended by ZRSU, Sumi Hoho, Sumi Kukami Hoho, Sumi Totimi Hoho, Zunheboto Town GBs’ Association and dignitaries including superintendent of police and officers from 32nd Assam rifles.

The programme culminated with face mask distribution in the town.
