No breach of lockdown and no compromise on quarantine time are the mantras of the disaster management in the state here, said sources.
State disaster management wing has asked DCs of all 24 districts to ensure that lockdown is not breached by over enthusiast people who are oblivious of the great many advantages that are associated with lock down and no reprieve in serving quarantine time.
Secretary women and child welfare department, irrigation department Amitabh Kaushal who holds additional charge of state disaster management said, “People must observe social distancing and keep themselves indoors. There is no alternative to it. It is the safest way to contain coronavirus.”
Kaushal said, “I have asked DCs to see that lockdown does not get any fractured. It must be observed in to.”
He said, “People serving any quarantine be it home quarantine or institutional quarantine must complete their mandatory period and they should control their any impatience as a patient and calm stay in quarantine is most beneficial to them and their families as well.”
He said inmates who complete their quarantine period successfully and are found fit and healthy by the doctor concerned will be too happy joining their families rather than those who nurse any thought of showing their back to quarantine centre mid period.
He said, “District administration must also see that facilities at the institutional quarantine centres are available and there is no deficiency as such to cause any discomfort to the inmates of the centres.”
According to civil surgeon Palamu John F Kennedy till April 8 there were 6,115 people in home quarantine, 1,908 were in government quarantine and people from abroad who had completed their home quarantine figured at 142 and people from other states who completed their home/ institutional quarantine stood at 3,655.
Kennedy said till April 8 16 people were in isolation ward. He said 11,730 people were verified by the team and similar number of them was stamped on their hands too.
