DIMAPUR, APR 1 (NPN) | Publish Date: 4/1/2021 12:50:04 PM IST

GB Union Dimapur (GBUD) has cautioned authorities against the spread of COVID-19 once again in the State and called for adopting precautionary measures to arrest the situation.

In a statement, GBUD president MY Ngullie and general secretary T Onen Jamir warned that the second wave of COVID-19 could be worse and even more dangerous than the first wave due to mutation of the virus. They said the detection of huge number of COVID-19 positive cases at St Paul Training Institute, Phesama recently should serve as a reminder that the State was under second wave of the pandemic. 

And seeing the spike in the cases, the duo expressed concern and cautioned that the State machinery like the health department, district administration, law enforcing agencies and CSOs should not remain complacent on the matter anymore. 

Observing that many people had left Nagaland, particularly Dimapur, for their home States following holding of Assembly elections there, the GBUD warned of the danger they would pose once they return from the pandemic-affected areas. Hence, it urged the authorities concerned to be prepared with adequate preventive measures to detect people infected with COVID-19 virus from entering the State. 

Demanding that every traveller and returnee entering the State must be strictly screened to contain the spread of the virus in Nagaland, the union also asked the general public to maintain discipline and adhere to the COVID-related standard operating procedures (SOPs) for their own safety and for the safety of others. It also demanded stern action and imposition of penalty against the defaulters.

GBUD appreciated the State government for tackling the pandemic effectively by and large so far and announced extending its full cooperation to the authorities for the welfare of people in the fight against COVID-19.
