As 19 wards under Kohima municipal area went into a seven-day total lockdown on Saturday, the state capital wore a deserted look as most of the commercial establishments were closed except some pharmacies.

The district task force (DTF) Kohima on July 23, 2020 decided to impose total lockdown for Kohima municipal area from July 25-31, 2020 to slow down the chain of transmission process and further contain the spread of COVID-19 infection.

With restriction on movement of all commercial/private vehicles, there was barely any traffic except for those on COVID/medical duty, essential services.

Volunteers were also seen monitoring public and vehicular movements in some colonies.

AKMWP inspects wards: On the first day of the seven-day total lockdown under Kohima municipal areas, the Association of Kohima Municipal Wards Panchayat (AKMWP) undertook ward visits and interacted with ward leaders and volunteers Saturday.

AKMWP officials said the day one of total lockdown passed off peacefully without reports of any untoward incidents. 

In this regard, the association has acknowledged ward leaders, volunteers and district authorities for displaying great discipline in observing the total lockdown uniformly throughout 19 wards. Highlighting the first day of the lockdown in a bulletin, AKMWP president Neibulie Kiewhuo stated that ‘total lockdown’ made possible “only due to oneness of purpose and action of the entire populace.”

More areas sealed

In view of the detection of COVID-19 positive persons, the deputy commissioner Kohima, Gregory Thejawelie, has ordered the demarcation of various locations in Lower Chandmari (Ward No. 13), Daklane Ward No 7, New Minister’s Hill Ward No. 16 and Mima Village under Jakhama Sub-Division as “sealed area” in order to contain the spread of the disease/infection and for necessary contact tracing.
