The government of Jammu and Kashmir has decided to create extra teams of the officials for the vaccination dire after the recent surge in covid-19 positive cases especially in the Srinagar city.

LG Manoj Sinha in a recent review meeting has asked his administration to be very strict with the violators of the covid protocol and has directed them to create micro containment zones in all those areas where the positive cases are showing the surge.

He directed the officials to conduct aggressive vaccination drives by mobilizing extra teams to fill the gaps across the UT. Map the areas reporting increase in positive cases and take immediate preventive measures wherever required.

He said the studies show the vaccination rate and Covid positivity are inversely proportional to each other. Therefore, maximum coverage of vaccination is required to eliminate the probability of increase in positivity rate, and severity of the cases.

During the meeting with DCs and SPs, he directed the joint team of police & civil administration for strict enforcement of Covid protocol and taking stringent action as per law against the violators.

He reiterated his directions to the DCs and Divisional Commissioners for ensuring vaccination of college, university students and specially-abled people through special drives.
