APSCC urges people to take precautions

SRINAGAR: In wake of coronavirus scare, All Parties Sikh Coordination Committee (APSCC) has urged people to take all precautions, saying it is a communicable deadly disease and it is necessary that people should avoid social contact, and in case they have to do so, then a gap of at least three feet has to be maintained between two persons.
In a statement, APSCC chairman Jagmohan Singh Raina said that since doctors and the other experts have advised people to follow social distancing, it is imperative that these directions are followed by the people of Jammu & Kashmir.
Raina said that slackness in this regard would lead to havoc among the population.
“When it comes to the health of the people, it is important that all the necessary precautions are taken by common masses,” said Raina.
APSCC chairman expressed concern that some persons who are coming from foreign countries are not cooperating by not giving full details about their travel history to the concerned officials. He said the family members of such people should come forward and provide travel details of their dear ones.
“In the present scenario, people who have travelled to foreign in the recent past should themselves give details about the visit. In case they don’t do so, then they are risking their own life along with their family members. Self-declaration is important and it has to be followed by one and all who have a travel history to foreign countries,” said Raina.
He said that need of the hour is that all the social, religious and political gatherings are cancelled, adding that it would ensure that there is no public participation in such programmes. He said that people should extend their full cooperation to the administration working on the ground to control coronavirus.
Raina said that any negligence in this regard would be catastrophic for the entire population of Jammu & Kashmir and “it would be difficult to contain the situation”.
He said that wisdom demands that people should remain indoors and only those people should come out who are associated with essential services or medical emergency.
