In order to stop the spread of third possible wave of covid-19 in Jammu and Kashmir LG Manoj Sinha in one of the weekly review meetings has asked the administration to become proactive and prepare itself to prevent the spread while expressing satisfaction that the positive cases have gone down.
Emphasizing on adopting multifold strategies to prevent the Third wave, he passed specific directions for further enhancing the Testing and Tracing in the coming days. Maximum vaccination, continuously analyzing the situation, strict adherence to Covid protocols, and enforcement of containment measures should be the focused area of the administration at all levels to tackle the future health challenges.
The effective preventive and surveillance measures have shown favorable results in reducing the intensity of the second wave. We need to consolidate the substantial gains achieved in containing the spread and accord highest priority to the areas reporting new positive cases. The sustained decline in positivity rate must be maintained.
J&K Government has substantially ramped up the vaccination capacity across the UT, which will add to the efforts of inoculating the maximum population.
He directed the officials to work with renewed energy for increasing the speed of vaccination in the 18-44 age groups and meet the targets in a time-bound manner.
