Early Times Report

SRINAGAR, July 8: Expressing concern over the laidback attitude of people of Kashmir in dealing with the Corona Virus pandemic the Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) today said that people are not following precautionary measures and health advisories in this regard.
President DAK, Dr. Suhail Naik said that people in Kashmir region have stopped taking the precautionary measures seriously which may be disastrous. He said the same may become a huge problem in the valley in view since there is a rise in corona virus deaths and positive cases in Jammu & Kashmir.
“After restrictions on public movement were eased people started thronging public places including markets, the same is an indicator of rise in positive cases.
There is still lack of awareness among people and they need to be educated so that the situation does not go out of control,” Dr. Suhail said.
Dr. Suhail said that it is unfortunate that some people call corona virus pandemic a “conspiracy” which would land people in trouble and there would rise in cases. He said that 9,000 people have been infected by the pandemic in Jammu & Kashmir while as nearly 150 have died suggesting it is need of the hour to take precautions seriously.
“We understand that lockdown isn’t a solution and economic activities are must, but socio economic activities should be done with all precautionary measures,” said Dr. Suhail. The DAK criticized the move of opening of public parks stating that the move may be disastrous for the people and it would encourage people to come out of their homes.
“The government has miserably failed to implement the precautionary measures on ground. There are places where people even do not wear a mask which is unfortunate. The virus is a reality if people would not follow precautions they would fall in trouble and will burden health infrastructure,” the DAK said.
The DAK appealed the government that before issuing any order regarding movement of people government should keep in mind all the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and protocols should be implemented strictly.
“If government wants to open public parks or tourist spots, the number of people or tourists should be specified and social distancing should be maintained,” it said.
