Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (EP)

Mangaluru, Jun 24: “Officials should ensure that weekend curfew is effectively enforced,” said deputy commissioner Dr Rajendra K V.

He was speaking in a meeting attended by taluk panchayat executive officers, tahsildars and taluk health officers at the deputy commissioner video conference hall on Thursday, June 24.

“There will be a complete lockdown in the district from 7 pm on Friday, June 25 to 7 am on Monday, June 28. Milk shops, hospitals and a few government offices are permitted to function. No other activities are allowed during the weekend. There will be no need for people to wander about as the government offices will be closed on the said dates. It is possible to reduce the spread of the infection by complete lockdown,” he said.

“Construction activities and factories can function. Hotels can only provide takeaway service. Weddings that are already scheduled can be held in their respective residences with a maximum of 25 people. Doctors will provide treatment in the clinics for cough, cold and fever. Such patients should be compulsorily tested for Covid. Anganwadi workers, ASHA activists and medical staff should work diligently in treating the Covid patients. The infected should be mandatorily shifted to Covid Care Centres," the DC added.

"The stock of vaccines that are supplied by the government should be administered to people on the same day. It is better to assign retired doctors for this purpose."

“There are rumours that the third wave will affect children. Therefore, parents should take extra care. Shopkeepers should make sure that children are not found in the shops. In case of violation, the owners will face a fine,” he said.

“Sub-divisional officers and local authority officials should monitor corona management. Tahsildars and taluk panchayat executives should hold meetings with their staff concerning virus control and obtain necessary details,” he said.

District panchayat chief executive officer, Dr Kumar said that the daily target of Covid tests assigned for the taluks should be met. He stated that the targets were only being achieved in Sullia.

DSP Hrishikesh Sonawane, additional DC Dr Prajna Ammembala, sub-divisional officer, Madan Mohan, health and family welfare officer, Dr Kishore and other officers were present.
