ANI Administration Should Make its COVID-19 Management Plan Public: Vishal Jolly

Port Blair, Aug 5: The recent surge in the number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the islands has sent shock wave across fellow islanders. With the number of cases racing towards four figure mark and number of death touching the two figure mark, the situation is getting from bad to worse every passing day throughout A & N Islands, said the Ex-President, BJP and Member of Home Ministers Advisory Committee, Shri Vishal Jolly in a letter to the Lt. Governor, A&N Islands.

Jolly further said that the BJP, A&N Islands on earlier occasions had pointed out gaps in Covid-19 management in the islands and suggested that the Central Government be immediately approached to deploy special team of doctors and Public Health Expert for effective management of pandemic situation in the islands. But nothing has been seen on the ground. With the Director of Health Services, Nodal Officer Covid-19 and several doctors testing positive, the situation is alarming and points to complete failure of those at the helm.

Vishal Jolly therefore demanded that the A&N Administration must make public its Covid-19 Management plan to combat the current situation. Islanders have the right to know the plan as well as preparedness of the Administration to battle with the deadly virus.
