ITANAGAR, 03 May: The health minister Alo Libang has warned that if the number of Covid 19 cases continues to rise, the state government will be left with no option but to impose lockdown in the Itanagar capital region (ICR). Talking to the press here on Monday, Libang said with each passing day the number of Covid 19 cases is rising at an alarming rate in the capital complex.
“The citizens are still not following the Covid19 SOPs. This business as usual attitude is very risky. We need to learn from what is happening in Delhi. This second wave is very dangerous,” said Libang. He also informed that more measures will be announced soon to try to stop the further spread of the virus. “Night curfew will start from 6 PM instead of existing 9 PM. The offices will operate in 50% capacity and visitors will be reduced. The gyms and parks will also be monitored,” he said.
Further the minister Libang shared that Arunachal Pradesh has enough vaccines to complete the vaccination of those above 45 and all the frontline workers.
“There is a vaccine crisis across the country. We will first complete the vaccination process of those above 45 and all frontline workers. After that only those above 18 will be vaccinated,” he added.
