Dimapur, May 27 (EMN): The Kohima District Task Force (DTF) on Thursday visited Sechu Zubza to inspect the ongoing preparation of Covid Care Centres and other activities to fight Covid-19.
The DTF was led by minister in-charge of Kohima Tongpang Ozukum along with a host of medical officials, district administration and NGOs.
Ozukum appreciated the Sechu-Zubza sub-divisional block level task force for the prompt action in identifying and arranging the Covid Care Centre (CCC) as entrusted in the last Kohima DTF meeting. He also thanked the Don Bosco School authority on behalf of the government as well as the Kohima DTF for coming forward and providing the school building to be used as Covid Care Centre (CCC) for the people of Western Angami area, covering fourteen villages.
“These are extraordinary times and therefore extraordinary services and commitment are expected from everyone and what the Don Bosco School authorities have done is something exemplary and extraordinary”, the minister remarked.
The minister also directed the Sechu-Zubza sub-divisional block level task force to immediately start working on war footing for preparation of both Don Bosco CCC and Sechu Government High School building, which will be utilised as the quarantine centre for the health workers.
While appreciating the decision of the Power department to provide uninterrupted power
supply in all the Covid hospitals and Covid Care Centres, Ozukum also made an appeal to the department to cover these two facilities and work hand-in-hand with the task force of Sechu-Zubza to accomplish the work at the earliest.
He also acknowledged the service of Dr. Vezokholu Theyo, CMO Kohima and her team stating that their ‘selfless and committed service was truly commendable, which sets as an example to all, particularly during this pandemic time’.
Taking part in the inspection team of Kohima DTF to Sechu Zubza, Advisor Medo Yhokha, conveyed his gratitude and thanked the Don Bosco School authority, Western Angami Public Organisation (Wapo) and local communities for making contributions towards the collective fight over the pandemic.
He also appealed to the school authority and Wapo to keep ‘provisions open at the Covid Care Centre of Sechu Zubza, once it becomes operational and functional, in order to accommodate affected patients from other areas’.
The advisor also assured all possible help to the community Covid Care Centre and added that funds made available under DPDB common pool would be earmarked accordingly in order to assist and facilitate the health care systems.
