Extending his warm welcome to the homecoming returnees, the Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dimapur, Dr. Tiasunup Pongener has appealed all the returnees in the quarantine centres to adhere to quarantine rules to ensure safe stay and timely release.

In an appeal to all returnees, the CMO informed that its team’s motto is “Your safety is our concern and our safety is your concern”. He maintained that the health workers have been working ceaselessly and sleeplessly for the last four to five months to help the returnees and the people of the state to remain safe from COVID-19. “During this period we have faced many ups and downs and many unfavourable but avoidable circumstances with the returnees in the quarantine centres, because of which I appeal to you so that your stay at the quarantine centre is safe for everyone”, he added. The CMO reminded  that there were instances where spread of infection happened among returnees due to the returnees not adhering to the quarantine rules leading to some of the returnees being discharged after 32 days instead of the normal 14 days (due to cross infection). “Remember that your near and dear ones are waiting anxiously for your safe and early home coming”, he stated.  Pongener said that it is their desire that the returnees maintain strict social distancing, wearing of mask at all times, frequent hand washing, not spitting everywhere, not loitering around inside the quarantine centres so that their stay is pleasant and they are released on time. 
“Inspite of all out efforts put in by the government, I am sure the facilities in the quarantine centres may not be like your home, but I assure you that your short stay at our institutional quarantine centre will be a life time experience which you will cherish later on in life”, said the CMO. 
In case of any health issues, the CMO has asked the returnees to feel free to contact its ‘Quick Response Medical Teams’ led by its medical officers (24 X 7).
