The Dera Bassi Fire and Rescue Services have launched a mega sanitisation drive in Jawaharpur village to check outbreak of Covid-19 today.

“Sodium hypochlorite is being used to disinfect public places,” he said.

Officials said squad members have been engaged to provide pick-and-drop service for residents, delivery of essentials and distribution of life-saving drugs to patients.

The administration has asked residents to practise social distancing and wash hands regularly.
