HAILAKANDI: The Hailakandi district administration has launched a massive operation to engage Anganwadi, Poshan Abhiyaan, MSK and Mamta workers to contain the spread of novel coronavirus (SARS-COV-2) in the rural and urban areas of the district.
Anganwadi, MSK, Mamta and Poshan Abhiyaan workers have been instructed to ensure that people follow home quarantine norms. "Every person coming from outside the district together with their family members under home quarantine are being monitored by Anganwadi, MSK and other workers under Mamta and Poshan Abhiyaan schemes in both rural and urban areas across the district," said SDO (Sadar) and in-charge of COVID-19 Suraksha Monitoring Cell, Jyotirmoy Daimary.
District Coordinator, Poshan Abhiyaan, Rajat Chakraborty said apart from the COVID-19 Suraksha Monitoring Cell, there is also a block level health tracking system to keep a tab on the persons under home quarantine in real-time.
Almost every day people under home quarantine are increasing in number by leaps and bounds and at the moment it has reached 1,158 as on Friday.
With this in view, a COVID-19 Suraksha dashboard has been created to monitor home quarantined persons vis-a-vis as to whether they are complying with quarantine norms as well as tracking their health status. A QR code is generated against every person under home quarantine making it easier for keeping a track on the dashboard. The QR code gets deactivated once a person completes a home quarantine period.
"Anganwadi workers, Poshan officials, Mamta and MSK workers are uploading daily health status of home quarantined persons after visiting them via COVID-19 Suraksha Mobile App," said Daimary, adding that these regular visits in a way help to find out whether the persons under home quarantine are following the quarantine norms or not.
Several cells have been formed under COVID-19 Suraksha which include Technical Cell, Monitoring Cell, Administrative and Training Cell for district level, block (rural) and urban areas.
377 Anganwadi workers, besides Mamata, MSK and Poshan workers together with several officials are engaged in the whole exercise and this has really paid off in terms of keeping a check on the health conditions of the home quarantined people in real-time and in containing the disease.
