He has instructed that recovery from the nuisance elements should be done to compensate for the damage caused by subversive elements. If they fail to do so, confiscate their property.

He ordered that the police team should also accompany the health team during testing and screening of Covid-19 suspects.

While reviewing the lockdown system on Thursday, the Chief Minister said that it should be strictly followed by the people. Also, the necessary materials are easily available to the public. In view of this, the system of home delivery should be speeded up. It should also be ensured that the supply chain remains uninterrupted.

Search operation for the helpers of corona carriers

The Chief Minister said that by sealing the hotspot areas completely, traffic should be strictly banned. Strict action should be taken against those who violate the rules. Only the medical, sanitization and door step delivery teams should be allowed to visit the hotspot areas. House-to-house sanitization should be done in hotspot areas.

He said that strict action should be initiated by identifying those who hide their symptoms and willingly do not reveal about the infection of coronavirus. Such people are likely to be a corona carrier. Action should also be taken against those who encourage such people and the policemen who do not search them.

Thermal scanner required in units starting April 20

The Chief Minister said that during the lockdown period, various activities are being conducted from April 20 as per the orders of the Government of India.

In all hospitals, N-95 masks, including PPE, all infection protection equipment must be available in sufficient quantities.

Emergency services should not be conducted without Covid-19 control training and security measures. In medical institutions where all the management of staff infection protection will be available and all medical personnel including doctors will be trained, only then operation of emergency services should be allowed. It will be the responsibility of the district administration to ensure this.
