Chief Secretary Dr. Arun Mehta chairs meeting to review prevailing COVID situation in J&K

In the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Secretary Dr. Arun Kumar Mehta on Thursday chaired a meeting to review the prevailing COVID situation and reiterated continuance of COVID-dedicated IEC campaign for generation of awareness towards prevention of subsequent COVID waves in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Chief Secretary observed that the current strategy for micro-containment zones needs to be reviewed to ensure its effectiveness and restriction of outward movement from clusters having substantial number of COVID positive cases. He expressed concern regarding large number of cases being reported outside containment zones and directed that the SOPs and protocols must be strictly enforced in these zones supported by enhanced testing, fool-proof quarantine of patients and stringent penalties on defaulters.

Dr. Mehta directed the department to evolve vaccination strategies that would be most effective in reducing the number of cases per day.
