Regarding the work on developmental projects, DC said that a nodal officer has been appointed with the mandate to monitor whether the health advisories especially maintaining social distancing and using safety gears are being adhered to by the workers at the project sites.
He also informed that concerned SDMs and Tehsildars shall monitor the implementation of these SOPs and guidelines in their respective jurisdictions.
Meanwhile, DC informed that so far about 28000 samples have been tested among which 1251 were found positive and among these positive cases, 513 have recovered thereby leaving only 707 as active cases, moreover, 32 deaths have also been reported in the district.
