 DIMHaving become the first State in the country to receive equipment for combating COVID-19 through airlift, Nagaland is now set to receive the final consignment of bio safety level (BSL) laboratory Monday.

An aircraft– C-130 Super Hercules – of Indian Air Force (IAF) is expected to fly from Mumbai with the consignment and reach here on Monday. The consignment will help in operationalisation of the much-awaited laboratory in the State. Even as Nagaland was reeling under lockdown with zero movement of transport etc. after imposition of Disaster Management Act, 2005 for the past 40 days, IAF played an instrumental role and unflinchingly supported the State government in getting basic emergency requirements with almost nine special air relief missions comprising of latest C-17 Globemaster, C-130 Super Hercules, IL-76 MD and Dornier-228 at short notices.

According to a DIPR release, collective efforts of officials of different line departments and their dedication under most difficult conditions, along with the active involvement of the State government to enhance disaster mitigation measures early had led to zero COVID-19 case in Nagaland. 

The release claimed this was praiseworthy and a great achievement of the State government. The unflinching support of IAF to the State would be remembered in the years to come and the Naga people extended their gratitude to the air warriors, the release added.
