PREEMPTIVE MEASURES. (Covid-19)
Everybody is exploring and observing the ways and means at his own level how to check and control the further spread of the deadly covid 19. In spite of lock down for the last 21 days the government and the local administration is making all its best efforts to control the deadly virus on all fronts besides assuring that the essential commodities including medicines are regularly supplied to the citizen with minimum discomforts.
But it may be noted that there is a word of caution for the public and administration. During the relaxation of lock down to purchase medicines, the other essential commodities people throng the market. The persons dealing in medical stores, grocery stores, milk vendors, vegetable vendors are highly exposed to the risk due to their mass contact with the public. During the process the currency is exchanged hand to hand, the possibility of transmission of virus may not be ruled out completely by such contact. To minimize the risk, the persons exclusively dealing with such activities may be tested as a precautionary measure, so that the transmission of virus, vice versa is ruled out.
