Jammu, July 21: Expressing his concern over rising COVID-19 cases in J&K and people’s casual approach towards containing the spread of virus, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) J&K Executive Member Raman Suri Thursday asked people to follow all government guidelines and wear masks in public places to keep everyone safe from the deadly virus and also save precious lives.
Raman Suri said, India's fight against COVID-19 is recognized across the globe, especially when over 200 crore vaccines have been administered to people in the largest ever vaccination programme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He added that even Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates appreciated our Prime Minister Narendra Modi for India's cumulative vaccination count against COVID-19 crossing 200 crore mark.
“We are passing through a very sensitive phase and the nation's healthcare workers have done a very commendable job by vaccinating people in the far-flung areas. People too have cooperated in containing the spread of virus and now we can't reverse all this exercise by adopting any laxity. Hence, we must follow COVID-19 guidelines and wear masks in public places”, said Suri.
The Union Government, he said, has launched a special 75 days drive to administer booster doses to people above the age of 18 years. This all is free of cost and is being done to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 for which people must corporate and get themselves vaccinated. We just can't take any chance and must continue our drive to contain the spread of virus at this stage itself, said Suri.
Suri said that ever since January 2021 when India launched world's biggest COVID-19 vaccination drive, over 200 crore people have been administered doses. This drive, he said, is continuing relentlessly and children aged 12 and above are also eligible to get themselves vaccinated against COVID-19 now. He urged people to show more patience and get vaccinated so that we are able to contain the virus completely.
