Chamba, May 11
If people — who need to get isolated or quarantined — do not have the arrangement of a separate room and a bathroom in their house, the municipal councils (MCs) will have to arrange such a facility for them.
A similar system will have to be set up at the village level by the panchayati raj institutions (PRIs) in rural areas so that the chain of infection could be broken effectively, thereby containing its spread in the community.
These instructions were issued by Deputy Commissioner DC Rana after taking a virtual meeting with the officials of municipal councils, block development officers and gram panchayat pradhans with regard to Covid-19 here today.
Rana said the municipal councils, nagar panchayats, panchayati raj institutions could play an important role in arranging and monitoring essential food items for people in home quarantine or isolation.
He said the process of vaccination should be expedited in the wards of municipal councils and gram panchayats by listing the left-out people above the age of 45 years so that all should be vaccinated.
