Be mentally prepared to receive returnees: APC
Agriculture Production Commissioner (APC), Y Kikheto Sema, who is also in-charge of Dimapur district for COVID-19 activities, has appealed to Mon and Peren districts to get mentally prepared to receive returnees, who have tested negative and undergone institutional quarantine in Dimapur for stipulated days.
Addressing a press conference at Saramati Hotel here Thursday, Sema said the move to send those returnees to their districts was being initiated so other returnees, who would be reaching the state in a few days, could be accommodated at the quarantine centres. It may be mentioned that around 3200 returnees are expected arrive in the state soon.
Dimapur currently has around 46 to 47 quarantine centres with a total capacity of around 4000 plus beds. 
According to APC, Dimapur was accommodating around 75% of the total returnees, which is around 3200 of the total 4000 returnees. Sema also disclosed that 12 COVID-19 positive cases in Dimapur comprised of four women and eight men and said that their condition was currently stable.
Meanwhile, APC expressed gratitude to all those responsible for providing spaces to the government for quarantine centres. He also acknowledged the Ao community and Ao Churches, Western Sumi Hoho and Western Sumi Baptist Akukuhou Kuqhakulu, and Kuda Baptist Church, for volunteering to sponsor and take care of returnees.
