    Mizoram govt asks citizens to wear masks 24/7 even at home

    Guwahati: With the state’s health infrastructure “stretching its limits” to contain Covid-19 infections, the Mizoram government has asked all residents to wear face masks round-the-clock even inside homes and advised them not to dine together at the table.

    “Wear a face mask so that you do not have to wear an Oxygen mask.” With slogans like this, the health department launched a 10-day-long “All Mask” campaign to ensure that people wear masks all time.

    “Citizens are requested not to dine together on a table and have buffet meals instead. All citizens are requested and advised to be more mindful in hand washing and use of sanitisers,” a statement said.

    Mizoram Health Minister R Lalthangliana launched the campaign in Aizawl.

    Lalthangliana said that the “All Mask” campaign was launched as per the advice of the state-level expert committee, which was constituted last month following a surge in Covid-19 cases in the state.

    Mizoram has been reporting more than 1,000 new cases daily for more than a month.

    The total active cases in Mizoram stood at 14,484 as it reported 1,224 new cases on Tuesday. Death toll touched 367.
