AGARTALA: The Tripura government is giving maximum stress on home quarantine as a strategy to fight coronavirus and advised all persons coming from outside to stay at home. Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath, who is acting as the spokesman of the government, said that in case any problem arises during the "stay at home", the government will make alternate arrangements and instructed all the panchayats in the State to identify at least one quarantine center in their locality.
Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb is personally looking after the arrangements and held a teleconference with the representatives of the local bodies to apprise them about the government decisions and to know if they have any problem in implementing these decisions.
The Chief Minister also decided to visit various panchayat and block areas to take stock of the situation and review the steps taken by the government. Nath said the Chief Minister will talk to the people and will instruct on the spot if any problem arises.
He claimed that the steps taken by the State government to fight coronavirus are working very effectively and is considered as a model in the country. "There is not a single death in the State so far and it is the best example of how the government strategy is working effectively," he said.
Arguing in favour of the government decision, he said the World Health Organization also advised for home quarantine and the Kerala government is also following the same strategy.
