Expressing grave concern over the second wave of COVID-19 that has hit several states in the country, the advisor sericulture, excise and minority affairs, Zhaleo Rio, has reminded the District Task Force (DTF) Dimapur to further strengthened Covid 19 management protocols.

Speaking at the monthly District Planning and Development Board (DPDB) meeting in the conference hall of DC Dimapur on Monday, Zhaleo, who is also the chairman of Dimapur DPDB, urged the DTF not to be complacent even though Nagaland has not been badly hit by the second wave.
