    Sarbananda Sonowal Reviews COVID-19 Situation

    Sonowal asked the administration to ensure the uninterrupted flow of essential commodities

    Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Wednesday reviewed the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Hailakandi district.

    Reviewing the preparedness of the district administration with senior officials, heads of departments and MPs and MLAs at the Deputy Commissioner’s conference hall here, the Chief Minister asked everyone to work “united” and resolutely in the fight against COVID-19.

    “It is a long-drawn-out battle against COVID-19 and everyone must rise in unison to overcome the huge challenge posed by the virus world over,” said Sonowal.

    He added, “The contagious virus knows no religion, no region, no caste, creed or religion, poor or rich, and transcends all the geographical barriers. To overcome this huge challenge, we have to fight unitedly.”

    Sonowal further added that he is engaged in holding talks with religious leaders so that people of all faiths stick to the lockdown guidelines and not assemble in places of worship.

    The Chief Minister added social distancing and avoiding gatherings are the only way out to arrest the spread of the virus. “As there is no vaccine, the only way out to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 is maintaining social distancing and avoiding gatherings,” he added.

    Sonowal asked the administration to ensure the uninterrupted flow of essential commodities and power supply during the lockdown period.

    He instructed the administration to take stern action against those posting objectional posts in the social media that can flare up communal tension and create stumbling blocs in the fight against COVID-19. “The Government will not tolerate any objectionable posts in the social media and stern action will be taken against the offenders,” he warned.

    He instructed the administration to reach out to the poorest of the poor and provide the much-needed respite during the unprecedented situation. Sonowal pointed out that the Rs 1,000 in cash to the people without ration cards should go to the genuine people only.

    The Chief Minister directed the administration to ensure the functioning of the DDMA control room 24×7 so that the problems of the people in distress are redressed immediately. He suggested shifting duty of not more than eight hours in the control room so that no one becomes lethargic and quality service can be provided to the people in need of medical help and other assistance. “We need to have dedicated people to man the control room and to provide quality service. This has to be sustained for a longer period as we do not know in what form or the other the lockdown will remain in force after April 14,” he said.

    Sonowal told the health authorities to provide proper training to the nurses and front line workers to tackle COVID-19 pandemic and to provide them with the best of facilities during their quarantine period.
