The Civil Surgeon informed that 202 teams and 18 mobile teams had been constituted to administer polio drops. As many as 20 health officers will supervise the process.
The team of the officials today visited all brick-kilns, colonies of labourers, factories and slum areas. Dr Sodhi said the health teams would be going door-to-door on the remaining two days of the drive.
He said, “The health workers have been carrying out the polio drive with all Covid precautions. I am hopeful that the teams will be successful in covering the target population in the next two days despite Covid restrictions.” — TNS
