Stating that the transport sector is highly vulnerable, the ZPC asked the official teams comprising doctors and police on duty to ensure strict surveillance, monitoring and screening of passengers at the entry gate, and advised the citizens to maintain social distancing, avoid gatherings, and follow the SOPs issued by the government.
