Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad Sangma on Wednesday announced adoption of saturation strategy by selecting vulnerable locations in the push for Covid vaccination in view of the alarming rise in Covid-19 positive cases in the state.

The chief minister, in a series of posts on Twitter, said that he had instructed district deputy commissioners to aggressively go on a second mission mode. He said that vaccination is the main strategy in the fight against the Coronavirus attack.

"Instructed the Team in the VC with DCs to agressively go on a 2nd Mission Mode for our #vaccination effort in the State by selecting vulnerable locations & adopting a saturation strategy. Vaccination is the main strategy in our fight," Sangma tweeted.

The chief minister pushed for a target-based and focussed approach and said that the state government will look at every district the way the country looks at the states in the effort to curb COVID pandemic in the country. "With trends growing in certain districts, we will look at every district the way the country looks at the States. We cannot generalize our study of cases & we must take a target-based & focused approach. Special Teams/Zonal Teams are being put in place to look into the management," he tweeted.

Sangma also advised the respective district deputy commissioner to involve members of the community in the fight against the pandemic.

"DCs are advised to take on mobilisation at the grassroot level by involving members of the community especially in vulnerable locations. Vaccination is the best armour to mitigate the impact of Covid. Encourage the Team to intensify their efforts," the chief minister said in another tweet.
