Meanwhile, coordination officer for the coordination centre, Dr Gomi Basar, and coordination officer for contact tracing and flying squad, Dr Kabak Tamar, visited the quarantine facility, the relief camps, the residential area for on-duty doctors and staff, and the Covid-19 control room here on Sunday.
DMO, Dr Subu Tasso Kampu, briefed the team on the overall preparations.
Dr Basar informed that “the quarantine centre in Yupia will be the second quarantine centre for Papum Pare and Itanagar capital complex, which is likely to be made functional very soon.”
He outlined the need for 24×7 security at the quarantine facility, besides provision of food and basic amenities for the quarantined persons, the doctors, the staff and the supporting staff, and advised the DMO to discuss the details with her capital complex counterpart.
The doctors also interacted with migrant labourers and enquired about their travel history and health problems. (DIPRO)
