Visitors to Meghalaya from states experiencing a surge of Covid-19 cases, such as Delhi, Karnataka and Maharashtra, have been requested to self-isolate, Health Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh said today.
Otherwise, the minister sought to assure the public that the Covid-19 situation in Meghalaya is well under control, with only 15 active cases. She also suggested that the public voluntarily return to certain practices, such as wearing facemasks.
“I would suggest that citizens should police themselves so that we do not inconvenience the public at large,” Lyngdoh said. “We have seen that that has worked in the last phase of Covid. We saw that it was the participation of the public that helped the state contain the cases from surging.”
