Day time movement is allowed, but the administration has advised residents to avoid non-essential travel.

Following the highlights of War Room Meeting

 Following extensive discussions in various forums and with medical experts, it was decided that the restrictions already imposed under corona curfew should remain in force for another week i.e, upto 05:00 AM on 25th May 2021, so that gain of plateauing of case load due to lockdown is not lost.

 Deputy Commissioner, Chandigarh will meet the representatives of various Traders, Market Associations and Industry Associations to solicit their views and suggestions regarding relief that could be provided to them due to loss suffered in the shut-down. Hon’ble Administrator appealed to the landlords of small residential houses to voluntarily reduce the house rents for the lockdown period, in order to give relief to the tenants who have lost their income and prevent their migration.

 Since there were complaints against private hospitals over-charging covid patients, the Hon’ble Administrator directed that Health Department should again notify the approved rates for covid treatment. It will be given in the media and also published prominently on the notice boards of the concerned hospital.

 Administrator expressed his happiness about oxygen audit conducted in all medical institutions. He also directed that oxygen plants functioning at GMCH-32 and GMSH-16 should be specially checked, so that there is no over-use, nor any mishap of any kind.

 Keeping in view the additional availability of vaccines for 18 and above category, it was decided to increase the number of vaccines and venues and also to administer 2,000 doses every day to the eligible beneficiaries, who have registered themselves on CoWIN Portal.

 Administrator thanked the Army Authorities, NGOs and various Charitable Institutions, who have come forward to set up Mini-Covid Care Centres. He also appealed to other organizations to come forward to set up such facility/provision for oxygen.

This will reduce the pressure on government hospitals. Such public private partnership will go a long way in winning the battle against corona.
