Only vaccination and covid apt-behaviour will save from third wave: DC to residents
Thankis Ludhianavis for making the district first in the highest vaccination coverage in Punjab
Ludhiana: Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma on Wednesday emphasized that only vaccination and Covid-apt behaviour includes wearing a mask, maintaining physical distancing and observing good hygiene would protect the people from the imminent third wave of Covid-19 pandemic.
Addressing the Ludhiana residents in his weekly Facebook live session on the official page of DPRO Ludhiana, the Deputy Commissioner said if the people keep following Covid appropriate behaviour and get the vaccine, then the third wave would not have any impact on their lives.
He said that people must not let their guards down at any cost against Covid-19 as scientists and experts are repeatedly warning against carelessness and crowding can lead to a massive surge in the case.
Thanking Ludhianavis for making the district first in the highest vaccination coverage in Punjab as nearly 13.50 lakh have received the jabs, Deputy Commissioner said that the vaccine is being supplied by the union government and people must get vaccine whenever it arrives here as the vaccination is critical to breaking the transmission chain of the virus.
The DC exhorted people to come forward for the vaccination in huge numbers especially encouraging youths and their parents in the inoculation camps to maximize the coverage.
On the questions of some residents regarding the opening of schools, he said that the district administration will send their feedback to the government and expressed hope that schools would be opened soon.
