Srinagar/IBNS: Government authorities in Srinagar on Tuesday informed about a backup plan to meet any eventuality arising out of the proliferation in covid19 cases.

The District Administration of Srinagar has also intensified its efforts to implement Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB) in the district.

“The number of people in any gathering has already been notified as not exceeding 25 persons, while people found without face masks at public places are being penalised,” a government official said

“District administration has already taken sufficient measures to avoid or minimise the predicted third wave of the virus. The directions passed in this regard are being implemented on the ground,” said the Deputy Commissioner of Srinagar Muhammad Aijaz Assad.

“The vaccination for the age group of 15 to 18 is also in full swing,” he said.

“The special teams have been set up to conduct surprise checks of markets and other public places. The teams are imposing fines on people not wearing face masks,” he added.

Speaking about the preparedness of the authorities to meet any eventuality, the DC said, “Backup plans have been formulated and scores of volunteers are ready to extend their services in case of need.”

Paramedicals and other trained youngsters needed in case of a covid19 eventuality are also available in Srinagar.
