STATE TIMES NEWSJAMMU: Former Minister and senior Congress leader Raman Bhalla on Monday cautioned the people to take the coronavirus seriously by maintaining the health protocol such as social distancing, hand-wash, and masks. “This is a disease anyone can get infected with. We cannot take the pandemic lightly. We all need to strictly maintain social distancing,” he said. Urging people to be serious about taking safety measures, Bhalla said that people in no way should become complacent in observance of personal health guidelines. This was observed by former Minister while interacting with prominent people of Nanak Nagar and Shiva Ji Chowk. Prominent among those present on the occasion include Corporator Pritam Singh, Mandeep Singh, Balwinder Singh Rinku, DCC General Secretary Aman Bawa, DCC General Secretary Vijay Singh Chib, Vijay Khajuria Viju, Vipan Sharma Kaka, Sunil Magotra, Sanjay Gupta, Nitin Sharma, RK Verma Goga, Raju Katyal, Sahil Mahajan, Aditya Sharma, Parmodh Jain, Danish Mahajan, Vinay Sharma, Kamal, Abhinav Sharma, Parnav Sharma, Vishal, Sarabjeet Singh, Krish Gupta, Yuvraj Gandotra, Sunil Pal, Dhruv Sharma, Parnav Mehra, Ankush Gupta and others. With government has announced more relaxations and easing of restrictions for resumption of economic activities under various sectors which have suffered severely during the ongoing lockdown period, the same should not be construed as the decline in threat of the infection and its further spread, he added. He said that people should realize that Health department has laid down guidelines for the public to remain unharmed from corona virus but the covid-19 per se is ruthless. He added that people should not be reckless by taking these guidelines lightly and run the risk of getting infected while the relaxations are given. He suggested that people should fear more and never construe easing of restrictions as an indication that virus is now eliminated. Rather people should become more cautious and cooperate with authorities to fight this disease in the Valley. Bhalla stressed on following guidelines in letter and spirit and appealed people to come out of their homes only when it is needed adding that the elderly and children in particular must stay indoors. He reiterated that compulsory use of face mask and maintaining social distancing protocol when outdoors is necessary and people must avoid visiting crowded places, avoid surface touching with hands, avoid hands touching mouth, nose or eyes, maintain hand hygiene, use sanitizers, take shower and wash clothes with detergent after returning from work places.
