At a time when the frontline workers across the country are fighting the war against Novel Coronavirus, in Arunachal Pradesh, a school teacher is rendering voluntary service to contain the viral infection.

John Panyang, a Secondary school teacher at Ruksin in East Siang district, has set up a temporary ‘Screening centre’ at the entry point of Ngorlung-Ralung village near Assam-Arunachal boundary.

Mr. Panyang has built the screening centre in a temporary hut using transparent polythene and bamboo and is equipped with a thermal screening machine, face-mask, hand glove and alcoholic sanitizer.

The School teacher said that he got training on screening technique from government doctors, who are also encouraging the initiative.

He said, in case of any high body temperature detected, the person is referred to Ruksin Community Health Center (First Referral Unit) for medical support.

Mr. Panyang has also voluntarily contributed his salary for purchasing medical equipment and other construction materials for welfare of his village.
