Kohima, July 15 (EMN):
Offices of the Kohima Smart City Development Limited (KSCDL) and Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) have resumed its function on July 14 after all primary and secondary contacts were tested negative for Covid-19.

KSCDL and KMC offices, which function in the same building, were temporary suspended for 12 days following detection of an official from Smart City as well as a staff from KMC for Covid-19 on July 1 and 8 respectively. Subsequent to the two frontline workers testing positive for the virus, the building was closed for some days, while the other employees went into self isolation at home until their test results were confirmed.

Kovi Meyase, KMC administrator and chief executive officer of KSCDL, informed Eastern Mirror that all the officials, staff and Safai Karamcharis were tested negative for the virus and added that the two offices began its function since Tuesday.

Meyase stated that five officials including him from Smart City, who were identified as “high risk category,” underwent a second test and all were tested negative.

“Our results came out on Monday, so we started to join our office since Tuesday,” he said.

Meyase and others went into self-isolation on July 2 as per the standard operating procedure (SOP) following the reports of the two officials, who were contracted with the virus.

The officer responded that the two patients from Smart City and KMC are “doing good” when asked about their conditions, who are currently being treated at Naga Hospital Authority Kohima (NHAK) Covid-19 hospital.

While the building has been sanitised, some of the staff from both KMC and Smart City informed that they are attending their work in roster system.

A safai karamchari also informed this newspaper that they began performing their job on every alternative day at the building as a precautionary measure.

When the entire building was closed, the other safai karamcharis and sanitation workers from KMC were engaged in their normal cleanliness activities in the capital city.
