Spreading Covid awareness at Kangvai village in Churachandpur
As part of its public outreach campaign, Loktak Battalion, Assam Rifles organised a 'COVID-19 Awareness and Appropriate Behaviour' drive at Kangvai village, Churachandpur on Wednesday.
As the Coronavirus second wave strikes Manipur mercilessly with ever-increasing number of new COVID-19 positive cases and COVID death toll rising daily, people are at a loss in grappling with the situation and emergency conditions. While there is shortage of ambulances and hospital beds in government hospitals, the medical charges at private hospitals for COVID patients are exhorbitantly high and the poor are rendered helpless and clueless in dealing with the situation as concerned authorities are reportedly not doing enough in spreading awareness. In the wake of it, a 'COVID-19 Awareness and Appropriate Behaviour' drive was conducted by the Assam Rifles at Kangvai village, Churachandpur.
