Covid warriors to be honoured


RUKSIN, 18 Jun: The local administration here in East Siang district has decided to honour the Covid warriors in recognition of their tireless efforts to prevent community transmission of the coronavirus.

Awards will be given to the ‘best Covid managed zilla’ and the ‘best Covid warrior team’ on the next Independence Day.

On Friday, Ruksin ADC Tajing Jonnom held a meeting with the ZPMs of Ruksin block and reviewed the Covid-19 situation in the subdivision.

Apart from the decision to honour the Covid warriors, the participants also adopted a few resolutions for better management of the Covid situation in Ruksin.

It was decided to intensify patrolling in order to ensure strict compliance with the Covid SOPs by the people.

The ZPMs were asked to conduct mass awareness campaigns, involving the gaon burahs and the village secretaries, and to mobilize the people above 45 years of age to receive both doses of the anti-Covid vaccine.
