Ziro residents following lockdown order

ZIRO, Mar 30: As the nationwide lockdown entered the seventh day on Monday, Lower Subansiri HQ Ziro witnessed absolute cooperation from the public.
The roads were clear of any vehicle or movement of people, thanks to the isolation measures and the barricades erected at almost all the villages and the administration ensuring door-to-door delivery of essential commodities.
So far, 821 orders for essential items, along with 456 LPG cylinders, have been delivered to the residents. Apatani Youth Association (AYA) general secretary Racho Kacho, PS OC Tania Uli and the UD department have provided gloves and masks to the delivery boys.
The administration’s initiative is supported by volunteers of the AYA, the Apatani Baptist Association, the BJP Yuva Morcha, and the Hapoli market committee.
In Yachuli, committees led by administrative officers have been constituted to ensure smooth supply of essential commodities. The shops have been directed to open between 9:30 am and 3 pm. Care has been taken to demarcate spacing between customers.
On the medical front, all the people with a travel history outside the state are being home-quarantined.
“In case of any refusal for home quarantine, the individual can be shifted to the quarantine facilities in the Old Ziro guest house and Old Ziro tourist lodge for Ziro-I, and the Yazali circuit house and the Yachuli forest circuit house for Ziro-II.
“Besides, an isolation centre has been established at the district tuberculosis centre in Ziro,” DMO, Dr Tage Kanno, informed.
He further informed that normal OPD at the general hospital here has been temporarily suspended and flu clinics have been opened.
“However, emergency services shall be continued, and the OPDs of the CHCs and the PHCs shall function normally,” the DMO said.
The hospital administration has decided to allow telephonic consultations for minor ailments in the number 9862886893. (DIPRO)
