Dimapur, June 2 (EMN): Team Dimapur led by the nodal officer for Dimapur, Y Kikheto Sema, along with the commissioner of police, SDO (Civil) Sadar and district immunisation officer visited vaccination centres at Lions Club Dimapur, SD Jain Charitable Centre and Diocese of Kohima Covid Task Force (DKCTF) control room on June 2.

At Lions Club Dimapur, the team was briefed that around 7,000 beneficiaries have been vaccinated at the centre since April 13. The team has appreciated the Lions Club for the infrastructure, manpower, refreshment and logistic support, a DIPR report stated.

The team also visited the Diocese of Kohima Covid-19 (DKCTF) task force control room at Bishop’s House, Dimapur. During the interaction, Fr. CP Anto, director of Peace Channel, informed the team that DKCTF is carrying out pastoral, Christian and humanitarian services to the people during these trying times. He added that the task force is exploring the possibility of extending financial assistance to the families who have lost their bread winner due to Covid. He added that the task force is also contemplating to start two Covid centres shortly.

The team has appreciated DKCTF for their love, compassion and unceasing support extended to the citizens of Dimapur district.

The team also visited proprietors of M/s. Medico, Dimapur, Basu Damani and Arvind Damani and appreciated them for their noble initiative of providing free medicines to all the Covid patients from the entire state who cannot afford the medicines from the open market.

At SD Jain Charitable Centre, the team was briefed that around 500 beneficiaries have been vaccinated since April 14. The team was also informed that a total of 198 persons were vaccinated on Wednesday.

Kikheto observed that Nagas are not coming forward for vaccination as they have not realised that vaccination is the greatest weapon to fight against the pandemic. He urged the Medical department and district administration to disseminate information about the availability of vaccine, place and other related information to the people through print media and other social media platforms.

Meanwhile, the district immunisation officer, Dr. Rebecca, informed that due to poor connectivity, vaccination of all age groups in rural areas was allowed ‘on the spot’ registration from May 31.
