COVID-19: No case reported in 47 tribal hamlets in Maharashtra’s Dhule district

Amidst the devastating second wave of COVID-19 in major parts of the country, there are around 47 tribal hamlets in Maharashtra’s Dhule district which have not reported even a single case of coronavirus. The efforts taken by the gram panchayats and health department staff have resulted in zero cases of COVID in these tribal Hamlets.

AIR correspondent reports, Dhule is one of the backward regions of the state and has witnessed a surge in COVID-19 cases last year as well as this year. However, the 47 tribal hamlets in this district have been immune to COVID-19. It is a shining example of a coherent efforts taken by the people living in these hamlets, officials from the gram panchayat, health officials, Asha workers and Aanganwadi workers.

Apart from following the three golden rules of wearing a face mask, washing hands regularly and maintaining social distancing, the villagers did not allow the outsiders to enter these hamlets which safeguarded them from COVID-19. One of the interesting aspect of these hamlets is that the houses out here are at a distance from each other, which naturally shields the people from coming into direct face to face contact with one another.
