New SOP issued by Chief Secretary turns as mockery

IT News

Imphal, Aug 28:

Two more COVID -19 positive patient who has been undergoing treatment at JNIMS COVID Care Center died early today morning increasing the number of death toll to 27. On the other hand, the modified Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for the returnees issued by the Chief Secretary of Manipur on August 25 turns as a mere joke as the directives have not been followed by those working in the field.“Among the two COVID-19 patients who succumbed early today morning, one is 55 years old personnel of the 16th Assam Rifles. As per report from the JNIMS, he was admitted at COVID Ward -1 on August 13 at 8 pm and died at 5.55 am today morning. The deceased was tested COVID-19 positive with HTN and pil Koch.“The other COVID-19 victim died is a 40 years old female from Imphal East district. She was tested COVID-19 positive with post-renal transplant and HCV infection and admitted at COVID Ward -1 on August 21. She died 30 minutes after midnight early today morning. “With the two fatal cases, the death toll has climbed to 27. “On the other hand, the modified Standard Operating Procedure on the handling of returnees issued by Dr. Rajesh Kumar, the Chief Secretary of Manipur appears as another joke to the people as those assigned government staffs at the ground for implementation of the project fails to follow the instruction.“As per the new SOP, no person shall be detained in quarantine centers after he or she has been tested negative with COVID -19. This was following the condition that all returnee to Manipur has to be tested immediately for COVID-19. Those found negative will be allowed to go home with advice to follow the COVID preventive measures like wearing a mask, frequent washing of hands with soap and water and maintaining social distance, etc.“However, a 26 years old merchant navy who had returned to Imphal on August 26 along with a test result that showed him as COVID-19 negative at Chennai day before he reached Manipur through RTPCR testing has been sent for quarantine instead of sending home despite explaining of having adequate room for home quarantine. “In contrast to the Chief Secretary’s order for immediate testing, no sample was collected from him until the next day. On fear of contracting the virus from among other returnees the 26 years old have to choose Imphal hotel spending lots of money and it is 2 days that he is in the hotel despite having a separate house for home quarantine.“Showing the test result of being COVID-19 negative from Chennai don’t help and the authority didn’t follow what the SOP issued by the Chief Secretary, thus costing me a huge amount for staying at a hotel”, the 26 years old merchant navy told Imphal Times.
