Imphal, July 27:

State government has strengthened its measures to contain the COVID-19 pandemic after the situation worsens in the last couple of days. Police have been empowered more to make sure that the lockdown are implemented strictly. Several people who were found violating the lockdown and SOPs have been either fined or detained today at various places.

A source said that around 200 staffs of the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences including doctors and nurses were tested today after the tracing of the virus to one of the staff and two other subordinates and their result are being awaited. On the other hand journalists who had attended the July 22 press conference at the Chief Minister Office premises have also been tested and result are being awaited. Mention may be made that as many as 18 reporters have attended the press conference and almost all staffs assigned at the COVID Control room opened at CMO premises had been kept in isolation and tested after a staff was tested positive of COVID -19. Health Minister L. Jayantakumar’s close relatives were also tested positive with the virus.

The situation at Thoubal district is worst comparing to other districts of the state. People now fear to come out of their home as the virus seems to have been spreading at community level even as authority denies of any such community spread in the district. Many among those affected are found to be without any travel history or have no knowledge of contact with affected people directly or not.

On the other hand after three doctors of the Thoubal District Hospital had been tested positive, patients and staffs who had been attended by those doctors are now restless on the fear that they too might get infected by the virus.

Local club and organization along with the district administration have been taking up stringent measures to contain the virus by imposing lockdown.
