There has been a lot of news about the fake RTPCR Tests being reported in Jammu and Kashmir post easing of restrictions. Even the matter was taken up by LG Manoj Sinha in the recent meetings of covid task force with his DC’s and SP’s.
While taking note of such reports about the fake RT PCR tests carried by some Tourists, the Lt Governor issued strict directions to penalize such action.
Any tourist carrying fake RTPCR test reports at the entry points, by road or air, will be penalized and authorities must send them back. We need to enforce the rule with a clear plan, besides communicating the same to all the stakeholders, the Lt Governor was quoted in the media by the newspapers.
The Lt Governor congratulated the Administrations and the health teams of Budgam and Bandipora Districts for achieving 100 % vaccination of 45 & above age-group with 1st Dose. With these two reaching the milestone, the tally goes up to Six Districts now for J&K.
He further appreciated the other Districts for intensifying the vaccination drive and asked the Districts with more than 90 % vaccination to cover the 100% target within 3 days. DCs and health authorities were also directed to ensure the priority age group is fully vaccinated within a week.
Covid-19 infection can recur if we will not take precautions while resuming our normal lives while the government has lifted most of the restrictions and has kept weekend curfew only in such areas which are still showing a good number of covid positive cases.
