Kohima, July 27 (EMN): As Covid-19 positive cases spike in Nagaland, towns and villages across the state have starting tightening measures to contain the spread of the virus.

The convenor of Pfutsero Town Public core committee, Mesulo Khalo, informed Eastern Mirror that ‘inter-district movement is strictly prohibited except within the Phek district’ and violators will be home quarantined along with whole family members for seven days.

However, security forces, medical personnel, district administration and media are exempted from the restrictions.

Khalo said that the resolution to restrict inter-district movement was taken by Pfutsero town public core committee on Covid-19 after a frontline worker from a quarantine facility in Pfutsero tested positive for Covid-19, and also in the wake of spike in the number of positive cases in the state.

He informed that the resolution would be strictly enforced with effect from July 27 till August 5, and that no ‘outsider’s commercial vehicle’ would be allowed to stop or park within the town.

Even for shopping, time and days have been fixed for different areas under Pfutsero division, and the public has been asked to strictly follow it.

Here is shopping schedule for different ranges and villages under Pfutsero division:

  • Kikruma and Khezhakeno – Monday
  • Phusachodu and Chozuba – Tuesday
  • Centre Chakhesang Range – Wednesday
  • Chizami Range – Thursday
  • Razeba Range – Friday

The update informed that marketing timing is from 6 am to 2 pm and no vehicle will be allowed to ply without proper reason after 3 pm. It warned that iff any village is found violating the shopping schedule, the Pfutsero Town youth forum would take its own course of action.

Khalo further appealed to the citizens to strictly adhere to the SOP issued by the government and not to visit friends and neighbours unless in emergency cases. He added that if and when necessary, the resolution will be reviewed and made it known to the public through further notice.
