Downward curve of COVID-19 in Mizoram: CM Zoramthanga


Aizawl: Mizoram Chief Minister Zoramthanga on Wednesday said that the COVID-19 curve of the state was moving downwards due to the collective efforts of the government and the people.

During a meeting of Chief Ministers and Lieutenant Governors of the States and Union Territories chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to review the COVID-19 situation in the country, Zoramthanga said that the issues of COVID-19 in the state were gradually declining. This is because the state strictly states in a statement issued by the State Department of Information and Public Relations that “Test-Track-Treat-Vaccination and Cowed Appropriate Treatment (CAB) should be observed.”
He attributed the decline in COVID-19 cases to compliance with government policies and support from churches and civil society.

He said that out of 759 active cases, more than 20 patients have not been admitted to the hospital.

Zoramthanga told the meeting that the death rate in the state is now 0.3 percent.

The Chief Minister informed the meeting that 13 oxygen plants received under PMCares have been successfully installed in district hospitals and one cancer hospital.
He said that at present there was no crisis in the supply of oxygen in the state.

Zormathanga also said that out of 624 applications received till April 24, at least 596 (95%) code 19 has been provided to the families of those who died due to code 19.

He said that action was being taken against the rest.

The Chief Minister also urged the Prime Minister to provide free vaccinations to people between the ages of 18 and 59 for precautionary measures.

The Prime Minister called for concerted efforts and urged the states and the Union Territories to be more vigilant as COVID-19 has not diminished in the country.

He also urged states and UTs to expedite vaccination and focus on precautions and the comfort-track-treat-vaccination model.
