APPEAL

 

In the wake of proliferation of the deadly Coronavirus-19 following its outbreak in China, Hon’ble Governor has appealed all Sikkimese  to take serious precautions and protective measures to effectively contain its spread in the State.

“The State government has put its preventive mechanism in place including extensive screening of travellers entering Sikkim at the entry check points in the border. Skilled manpower have been deployed to tackle any eventuality related with the disease. At this hour of imminent crisis, I appeal my fellow Sikkimese to remain calm and informed about the symptoms of the diseases widely being publicised through official media sources and televisions and support the efforts of the government to prevent its spread. At the same time, I also appeal everyone to remain alert from the false and malicious information being circulated through various social media platforms to create panic in the public.

We should stand firm and united to tackle this menace by spreading awareness and enhancing our preparedness.

Further, in view of the impending Holi festival this week,  I advise my fellow Sikkimese to avoid celebrating Holi in crowd. I urge everyone to follow absolute hygiene and precautionary measures while enjoying the festival of colors among friends and family members.”
