CHITRAL: Avoid complacency on coronavirus outbreak in Chitral. Everyone should play their role by taking the precautions seriously and creating awareness of the disease among those who do not understand its gravity.
This was stated by social activist Rehmat Ali Jaffar Dost while talking to reporters after conducting an awareness drive in almost all parts of Upper Chitral.
He said the administration of Upper Chitral was short of resources but people in the area had become more conscious of the implications of the virus and were strictly taking precautionary measures.
He stressed the need to avoid complacency on coronavirus outbreak.
He said most of the people returning from different cities were labourers who did not properly know the safety measures. But the locals have become so proactive about coronavirus outbreak that they are now forcing all the returnees to self-isolate themselves in their housed.
He said during his awareness drive backed by the district administration of Upper Chitral, he was joined by volunteers in areas such as Yarkhun Lasht, Laspur, Torkhow, Mulkhow and Charun Oveer to help people in maintaining social distancing, proper hand washing and making masks locally.
He was of the view that by spreding awarenss about the seriousness of the virus and precautions we can keep Chitral safe from the disease.–Muhkam Uddin Ayuni
