By: Tariq Shah VOV
Deputy Commissioner (DC) Srinagar, while ordering the formation of eight micro containment zones in Srinagar city has said that if the people will not take precautions, the government would be forced to go for a lockdown and Srinagar city can become the source of third wave as lot of cases were reported from here regarding the infection of covid-19.
He has appealed to people to adhere to Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) here especially during the gatherings as the city has the possibility to become a reason for the third wave in Jammu and Kashmir.
Talking to KNO at commercial Hub Lal Chowk, Asad said that nearly 60 per cent Covid cases on daily basis are being reported from Srinagar district only.
He said that the reason behind the surge in cases is non-adherence to the Covid guidelines. “I, as District Magistrate, would not hesitate to say that Srinagar could become a reason for possible third Covid wave in J&K,” he said as per news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO)
He added that there is a need to follow the SOPs in letter and spirit so that it would be easy to prevent the virus from spreading. However, he said that in case people will not adhere to the guidelines, the administration will come up with a strict measure in this regard.
Meanwhile, DC Srinagar along with scores of officials from administration and police visited markets here to inspect the implementation of Covid SOPs.
