The authorities have planned to re-open the COVID control room under the GHMC limits, in view of the massive spike in the COVID cases. On Monday, the principal secretary of Municipal Administration, Arvind Kumar, held a review meeting with the AMHOs, and zonal, deputy commissioners on the prevailing pandemic situation in the state. Arvind Kumar ordered the officials of the municipal department to clear up the garbage piled up on roads in the wake of pre-monsoon rains which can increase the risk of COVID infection. He directed the officials not to neglect the sanitation work in these crucial times.
He also asked the AMHOs and deputy commissioners to do the fieldwork at 6 AM every day and make sure there is no garbage on the roads. The officials have also been asked by Arvind Kumar to impose a fine on those throwing the waste on roads. He also ordered to reopen the COVID control room under GHMC limits and ensure it is operated as efficiently as during the first wave of the COVID19.
