Meanwhile, the doctors and staff of Noklak Community Health Centre have expressed concern that many people are reluctant to avail proper medical advice fearing to test for Covid-19. They noted that many people with ailments, which are not related to Covid-19, are staying at home without proper medical treatment.
They have requested the Information and Public Relations Department of the State to disseminate information through a public announcement and other means on the difference between Covid-19 related health issues and other dangerous sicknesses.
They stated that some people may be dying of sicknesses, which are treatable and curable, due to negligence. The doctors of the centre have also given their mobile numbers for consultation for any kind of sickness.
