The Meghalaya government has warned of strict action against people furnishing false details to authorities regarding contact tracing and others entering the State.

 “Few persons while furnishing their details, names, addresses, even mobile number submitted fake details. 

Today, we discussed and noted this attitude very seriously. Why should people furnish wrong information to the concerned authority, especially while fighting the COVID-19,” Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong told reporters after a review meeting on Wednesday.

 “Therefore, from now on, the government will not spare any person who furnishes wrong statement or false statement to the authority and stern action will be taken,” he cautioned, even as he pointed out that the fight was also on the “individual level”.

 “The incident of wrong information took place at entry points to hide their identity and addresses. 

Therefore, those who failed to submit details, we will take action against them as per law. We have issued strict directions to the concerned authority on this matter so that it does not happen,” Tynsoong said, even as he informed that 25,588 persons have returned to the state from outside till date.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Chief Minister announced that Meghalaya will soon have a plasma bank at the North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute of Health and Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS) and the process to set it up is in full swing.

He said that the plasma bank will help in fighting COVID -19 in Meghalaya and the entire North East.
