Sensation grips Bordumsa in Changlang District of Arunachal Pradesh with 5 fresh COVID-19 cases detected on Sunday morning.
The new patients include a senior nurse, who tested positive for the COVID-19 on Saturday afternoon.
Except for one Rohit Saha, a returnee from Bihar who was in quarantine centre at Bordumsa Higher Secondary School who tested positive this afternoon, all four included two GNM nurses and the husband of a nurse and an employee at PHED department had no travel history so far.
“The fear of community transmission has gripped the entire Bordumsa circle as one of the senior nurses had recently attended the last rites ceremony at Kherem Pisa village,” informed Gumsong Lawang the advisor Bordumsa COVID-19 vigilance Committee adding “Three nurses at the local CHC and remaining 6 persons were among the common people including government employee who tested positive suddenly during Rapid antigen test.”
“Though the frontline workers intensified their crusades in the entire affected areas yet the contact tracing and test are at snail pace which might prove costlier for Bordumsa in the days to come,” said Lagang.
The barber of a saloon (Mohammad Semim) in the township where one of the patients had visited recently is yet to be tested’, Mr Lagang one of the crusaders pointed out while demanding immediate and rapid action to this effect before the matter slips out of hand.
Contact tracing may be an arduous and complicated job this time in Bordumsa after unexpected surge but not impossible provided the denizens of my constituency are loyal to themselves and carry out their social responsibilities for common good’, said the local MLA while reposing faith upon his people.
“We have tested more than 50 medical staffs today and few primary contacts today,” said Gumlat Maio one of the doctors in Bordumsa CHC.
All the fresh 10 persons who have been detected with positive within 24 hours have been immediately shifted to COVID care Center at Bordumsa.
All are asymptomatic, one detected at QC Facility, three of the ten includes nurses and rest were relatives and dependents of the patients’, said the young doctor.
