Mandatory For People To Undergo Medical Examination Before Entering Himachal Pradesh: CM Jai Ram Thakur

Mumbai: Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said on Monday that people entering the state would be subjected to a full medical examination and only then they would be allowed to go out of their homes to stay out of the house.

The remarks were made during an interaction with the Deputy Commissioners, Superintendents of Police and Chief Medical Officers and directed the officials to ensure complete medical testing.

The Chief Minister said that it should be made compulsory for people entering the state to download the Arogya Setu App.

The statement issued by the CMO said, “The pass issuing mechanism should be waived by the concerned Deputy Commissioners to avoid congestion at the entry points of the state.”

He said that during video conferencing with the Chief Ministers of the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has particularly emphasized the need for social distance.

Thakur underlined that efforts should be made to start economic activities, especially in green areas.

He said, “A special emphasis should be given to the running of essential commodities and farming equipment smoothly. People should also be encouraged to wear face masks and cover the face as it can check the spread of coronavirus.”

The Chief Minister said that since selective shops were allowed to open in select areas, it should be ensured that effective social disturbances persist and that all people use face masks and sanitizers.

According to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the state has so far reported 40 confirmed COVID-19 cases including 22 repaired or discharged cases and one death.
