Kohima DTF to intensify lockdown measures
Dimapur, June 19 (EMN): Considering improvement in the area of testing, positivity rate, hospitalisation and vaccination in the district, the Kohima district task force (DTF) has decided to strictly enforce and monitor the implementation of the lockdown measures put in place by the government.
The decision to this effect was taken during a virtual meeting held on Saturday to review Covid-19 status in the district under the chairmanship of the deputy commissioner and DTF chairman of Kohima, Gregory Thejawelie, a DIPR report stated.
On the vaccination drive, which has been scaled up with additional outreach sessions by the medical team targeting all eligible beneficiaries to get the vaccine, the DTF informed that all required measures have been undertaken to achieve the target of vaccinating all eligible beneficiaries in the urban and rural areas in the district.
The members also discussed opening more shops as put forward by the KCCI. While observing that with more relaxations, increase of mobility could thwart the past efforts, DTF has decided to put forward the HPC when the situation comes to a certain comfortable extent.
DTF also reiterated that the timing of total ban from 4 pm to 5 am with effect from June 19 to the 30th in the district would be applicable to all the public while permitted activities would be allowed under the purview.
Report also stated that minister in-charge of Kohima district and minister of PWD (Housing and Mechanical), Tongpang Ozukum, along with advisor of Urban Development and Municipal Affairs, Dr. Neikiesalie Nicky Kire, and advisor of Technical Education and Election, Medo Yhokha, senior superintendent of police, Kevithutuo Sophie, CMO Kohima, Dr. Vezokholu Theyo, and other DTF members have participated in the meeting.
