ITANAGAR, Aug 2: In an effort to boost the morale of the health and frontline workers, MLA Tapuk Taku on Sunday visited the new District Covid Care Centre (DCCC) at Seppa in the district hospital and the District Covid Control Room and distributed Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), face masks and sanitizers to them.    
The MLA inspected the male and female Covid isolation rooms in the district hospital and handed over green tea and health drinks to the DCCC inmates to boost their immunity. He was accompanied by DC P.A Polumatla, ADC Dahey Sangno, DMO and other HoDs. 
Appreciating the dedicated works of the frontline and health workers and the DA in containing the pandemic in East Kameng district, Taku said that the reason for his visit is to ensure there is no shortage of basic requirements in fighting the pandemic. “Team East Kameng is taking all efforts to ensure supply of all requirements to contain the pandemic,” he said, also informing that the four legislators from the district earlier had agreed to provide the MLALAD fund to the DA. Reminding that as there is no vaccine as yet for coronavirus, he requested the people of the district to cooperate with the DA and strictly adhere to the SOPs and obey the lockdown which will continue till August 10.

Meanwhile, the DC during a meeting with the MLA, HoDs and other officers at Kameng Hall informed that the district has detected 39 Covid positive cases so far. “All the positive cases are asymptomatic, 2 already discharged and 2 new cases were detected today,” he informed, adding that the lockdown was imposed with the intention of making easy and fast contact tracing of positive cases. He however said that although the district is not facing difficulty in supply of PDS and LPG, vegetable procurement has become a matter of concern.
“Vegetables are mostly brought through Assam via Bhalukpong and the transporters are reluctant to go for any Covid-19 test,” DC said while requesting the MLA to intimate the state government accordingly so that tests for the transporters can be done at the Bana check gate.  He also apprised the legislator about the night flying squads deployed to check any movement, food provided at the DCQC and the cooperation being received from the district’s people.
On Saturday, Taku visited the entry check gates at Lamdung and Bana and besides assuring all-possible help from his end, distributed PPE, masks and sanitizers to the frontline workers and interacted with them.
The MLA later visited the Covid testing point at Circuit House where he was tested Covid negative through Rapid Antigen Test (RAT).
