Take Covid seriously

The two-member central team which is in the state in view of the surging cases of Covid-19 in the state has expressed concern over the high number of active Covid-19 cases in the state. Covid cases continue to rise with the Itanagar capital region (ICR) leading the positivity rate. The number of people getting admitted at the DCH is also increasing day by day. The situation is going from bad to worse. While the impact of the second wave is gradually coming down in the rest of the country, the situation is the other way around in the Northeastern states.
Covid cases continue to rise at an alarming rate in the NE states. Neighbouring Assam is witnessing a massive surge in cases. In Arunachal, too, the situation is alarming. The cases are rising not only in the ICR but even in the districts. In a worrying development, Covid cases are being reported from villages, too. If not checked properly, this can prove catastrophic for the state. The citizens as well as the authorities should not lower their guard. The danger of Covid still persists and it is not going away easily. The authorities regularly emphasize the need to follow Covid-appropriate behaviour. However, it is seen that the majority of the citizens flout the SOPs and continue to behave in a reckless manner.
