Manipur: No COVID-19 positive case in Nongkam Satang, says village authority

The NSVA accused the Ril-ram Area Maring Organisation (RAMO) of making up propaganda to declare N Satang Village as a containment zone without genuine information and proof.

There is no COVID-19 positive case in Nongkam Satang village of Chandel district in Manipur, the Nongkam Satang Village Authority (NSVA) has claimed.

The NSVA accused the Ril-ram Area Maring Organisation (RAMO) of making up propaganda to declare N Satang Village as a containment zone without genuine information and proof.

The NSVA chairman stated in a release on Wednesday that a one day awareness programme on cane and bamboo was held at N Satang Village on August 4, but till today none of the villagers showed any positive symptoms of COVID-19.

However seven suspected villagers were tested for COVID-19 on August 17 and all the seven villagers were tested negative for COVID-19, the release added.

Unfortunately RAMO wrote an application to the DC asking to declare N Satang Village as a containment zone, the NSVA chairman stated.

The NSVA further sought clarification from RAMO in regards to the application submitted to the DC for declaring N Satang Village as a containment zone.
