According to DIPR report, EAC, Chümoukedima, Thejavizo Nakro in his keynote address said that though the state was still in stage 2, the training programme for community leaders was initiated to impart facts and precautionary measures of COVID-19 pandemic keeping in mind the potential of community spread. He urged the gathering to strictly follow all the safety protocol issued by the government to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Head of Anesthesiology department, CIHSR, Dr. Adahru Moses explained in detail how COVID spreads. Reminding the gathering not to panic, he said that among the positive cases 81% were known to be asymptomatic and 14% moderate and only 5% were known to be severe cases.  People above 65 years of age, diabetic, heart problems and immune compromised were known to be vulnerable groups.
