Follow Covid-19 protocol, Ludhiana DC urges residents

Varinder Kumar Sharma, Deputy Commissioner, Ludhiana

Ludhiana, August 4

As Covid-19 infections have started witnessing an upward trend in neighbouring state Himachal Pradesh and UT Jammu and Kashmir, Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma on Wednesday urged city residents to strictly follow Covid-appropriate behaviour and get vaccinated to effectively tackle the imminent third wave of Coronavirus.

Addressing Ludhiana residents in his weekly Facebook live session on the official page of DPRO Ludhiana, Sharma said if people firmly adhered to Covid norms, includes wearing masks, social distancing, observing good hygiene and getting the vaccine, the third wave would not have any major impact on their lives.

He said the rising cases in the neighbouring states was a matter of concern and people should not show any kind of carelessness as it could lead to cases rising in Ludhiana also. He said scientists and experts had warned that carelessness and crowding could lead to a massive surge in cases. — TNS
