Tripathi to continue as Covid control room head

Saturday, 23 May 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

The chief operation officer (COO) of the State Covid-19 control room Abhisek Tripathi would continue to work on his position in Covid-19 control room.

Tripathi, a PCS officer, was removed from the position of the Additional Mission Director National Health Mission (NHM) on Thursday by the State administration and Jharna Kamthan was transferred on his position. Since the Covid-19 control room is situated in the office of NHM, its additional mission director was appointed as COO of control room. However considering his expertise in the field, Tripathi on Friday was asked by newly appointed secretary, medical health and family welfare, Amit Singh Negi to continue to hold the position of COO of Covid control room. It is pertinent to mention here that the state government on Thursday had removed the secretary health Nitesh Kumar Jha from his position and handed over the task to Amit Singh Negi.
