Gurugram, January 12

Putting an end to rumours, Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Dr Yash Garg today said the Covid-19 situation in the district was under control and that there was no need to impose any lockdown.

“People should abstain from rumour mongering and make migrant workers around them aware about the real situation. We are maintaining a close watch so that there is no panic exodus. Everyone should, however, exercise Covid-appropriate behaviour,” he said.

The administration also reviewed the functioning of industrial units. Various industrial associations have appealed to the workers not to pay heed to rumours, but strictly observe Covid-appropriate behaviour.

Residents’ welfare associations have also been asked to update all domestic helps and other staff about the situation and ensure that containment is not confused with lockdown. Private transporters, who run buses to Bihar and Bengal, have also been put on alert against supporting any such exodus. Dr Yash Garg, Gurugram DC, said, “We are maintaining a close watch so that there is no panic exodus.”
