MLA P. Saratchandra said that with the mass spread of the pandemic in the state in the last few days it has been to a situation where the Doctors no more feel like going to the hospital as well treat the patients by taking inside the hospital.
If we are to protect ourselves and our family members and loved ones from the Covid-19, then we should not forget to have the habit to maintain social distancing and home quarantine if one of our family members happens to visit some places far from home, the MLA said. If we have any suspicion of being infected with the virus, we should not hide it but we should instead inform the concerned authority to take up prior precautionary measures to fight the Covid-19 virus, he added.
The MLA also said that now a big challenge is right before us where even the doctors have to take stronger precautions to protect from the very Covid virus. Thus, the pandemic Covid-19 can only be taken under control when we the people fully understand its consequences.
In the meantime, there is a need to stop those youths who are roaming here and there at different places in search of drugs and alcohol during the evening hours.
At this critical time in Manipur State, instead of sidelining the Medial Staff, Police personnel and other frontline warriors, if the public comes out jointly as Volunteer at their best level places then at that time we can protect ourselves from the virus, he added.
The MLA further said that the duties carried out by Medical Staff, Police personnel at this critical hour are one of the major duties. Thus at this time we need to join together and take up strengthened precautionary measures to save our state, our people and defeat the Coronavirus, he added.
Various resolutions were passed and the experts also elaborated on how to prevent and protect from Covid-19 during the meeting.
