As part of the activities taken up to control the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19, 150 GHMC teams are in the field, to track down those who have come from outside India recently.

The teams are verifying and getting the details of their health and also that of their family members, said GHMC Commissioner Lokesh Kumar.

As per the orders of the government, people who have come from outside India should remain in house-quarantine for a period of 14 days compulsorily. Kumar said that those who disobeyed the orders of the government would be shifted to designated quarantine centres. If the teams that are in the field find any person having symptoms of the coronavirus, they will immediately inform the control room, and the affected persons will shifted by ambulance to the isolation centres for further treatment.

So far, the teams have verified 1,400 persons at their houses and found no one with the virus.

The Commissioner added that the field teams were equipped with safety kits.

Kumar said that any person suffering from symptoms of the coronavirus should immediately inform the helpline number 104.

He added that the GHMC was taking up special sanitation at places where positive cases were reported and wherever home-quarantines were happening. It was also taking up special sanitation drives at isolation areas. The entomology wing and the EVDM wing were taking up spraying as specified by the government.

To create awareness on the steps to be taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, hoardings were erected at junctions and various places in the city, and pamphlets printed in Telugu, Urdu and English were being distributed, Kumar said.

He appealed to the citizens to follow the directions given by the Chief Minister to not come out from 6 AM on Sunday to 6 AM on Monday as part of the Janata Curfew.
