Kohima DTF emphasises on Covid tests
Dimapur, June 29 (EMN): Following decision of the High Powered Committee (HPC) to roll out ‘Unlock 1’ from July 1 to the 10th, the Kohima district task force (DTF) has worked out modalities and measures to be activated during the period, while it also decided to continue with Covid-19 testing and trace out the actual position on the rise of positive percentage.
The decision to this effect was taken during its meeting held on June 29 headed by the deputy commissioner and DTF chairman of Kohima, Gregory Thejawelie, in the presence of advisor of Urban Development and Municipal Affair Dr. Neikiesalie Kire, advisor of Technical Education and Elections Medo Yhokha, HoD and representatives from AKMWP, KCCI and KVYO.
Reviewing the status of vaccination, the DTF acknowledged the progress in the district and further encouraged to take up more measures and awareness to sensitise and vaccinate all eligible beneficiaries.
To create more awareness on vaccination, KCCI has initiated a vaccination card to be pasted at the entrance of the shops (indicating that the shopkeeper has been vaccinated). The KCCI and AKMWP have also been requested to assist the DTF in monitoring the malls, markets and shopping complex and regulate additional SoPs to avoid overcrowding in the next unlock phase.
During the meeting, DTF has requested all the ward leaders to identify positive patients and strictly adhere to the SoPs of isolation till their isolation period is over.
The DTF further decided to issue further course of actions after receiving the directive from HPC.
The meeting concluded with suggestions from the members to strictly enforce the odd-even system for vehicles and to strictly follow Covid-19 protocols at all times.
