Kohima District Task Force (DTF) on COVID-19 took up various issues pertaining to COVID-19 surge situation in the district during its meeting at DPDB’s conference hall on April 7. The meeting was attended by minister-in-charge for Kohima district on COVID-19, minister for PWD housing & mechanical, Tongpang Ozukum and was chaired by deputy commissioner (DC) Kohima, Gregory Thejawelie.

According to DIPR report, deliberating on COVID-19 surge and district preparedness on the issue, the meeting decided to re-activate sector officers and wards/colonies on COVID-19 to carry out COVID-19 related activities in their respective areas as executed earlier.

The meeting observed that it was necessitated because of the increase of positive cases and to monitor returnees from other states in their respective areas as precautionary measures. 

In this connection, Ozukum said that without the active participation of all wards, colonies and Panchayats, the district would not have achieved this far and called upon stakeholders to continue their support towards the successful implementation of the existing SOPs. 

For effective implementation of existing SOPs on COVID-19 in wards and colonies, the meeting decided to recommend for authorisation of All Kohima Municipal Ward Panchayats (AKMWP) to high power committee on COVID-19 to check and implement the SOP especially wearing of face mask and to penalize defaulters.

In this regard, DC also informed on the surprise checking conducted on April 5 and said that DTF would continue to carry out such enforcement drive for the safety of all.

As entrusted by the state health department, DTF decided to conduct random sampling and testing within Kohima town with some group of people involving their concerned unions and AKMWP organisations very soon. 

CMO Kohima, Dr. Vezokholu Theyo highlighted on the recent positive cases at St. Paul training institute and informed that all necessary measures and close contacts were taken care.
