“The threat of coronavirus is still there. The fact that the curfew has been lifted, relaxations are given or there is not a single case of the disease in the district does not mean that the disease has gone away,” he said.
He added that if we adopt a careless attitude, the disease can strike us again. Meanwhile, the Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan said that all the necessary precautions and guidelines should be followed to stay away from coronavirus and added that every person should cover his or her face with masks, handkerchiefs, piece of cloth, etc. He also asked people to maintain distance from each other and wash hands frequently.
Girish Dayalan also appealed to the people not to leave their homes and only go out when necessary and asked them to visit hospitals in case of any serious problem only.
