Identify areas where violation of norms is evident: Badnore

Chandigarh, July 27

The UT Administrator today directed the MC Commissioner to identify the congested and other markets, where the violation of social distancing norms is more evident so that stringent regulatory measures such as weekend curfew and odd-even formula can be implemented in these areas.

During the review meeting, MC Commissioner KK Yadav informed the Administrator that the number of sanitisation teams had been increased.

The PGI authorities apprised the Administrator of the feasibility of carrying out antigen testing and the ICMR protocol finalised for this testing.

The Administrator said at least 1,000 such testing kits should be procured by the PGIMER and used primarily for OPD patients to validate the usefulness of these kits.

He said all facilities of the Health Department should be operationalised for collection of samples of the patients. Bandore also directed that vulnerable population, particularly those staying in GRIID, Snehalaya, Old Age Home and Blind School, etc, needed to be specifically screened and senior citizen associations might also be consulted for any immediate medical assistance in these trying times.

Dr G Dewan, Director, Health Services, said they had covered more than 10,000 persons in a door-to-door survey and 10 teams had been deployed for the purpose.

The Deputy Commissioner, Mandip Singh Brar, said more than 7,500 challans had been issued for various violations to ensure the compliance of the norms. — TNS
