Four more persons, who were in touch with positive case from Srinagar’s Hyderpora locality, have tested positive for Coronavirus, officials said on Wednesday.
J&K government spokesperson Rohit Kansal said four more persons, all from Bandipora in north Kashmir, have tested positive for Coronavirus.
“Preliminary findings suggest they were close contacts of Srinagar patient who tested positive on Tuesday,” he tweeted.
He said all the five patients have participated in a religious event which was attended by dozens.
Reports said a 67-year-old woman, who was the first person to be tested positive for Coronavirus in Kashmir valley, was treated successfully, according to officials.
Three persons, who were tested positive on Tuesday, included an elderly man from Natipora, who had returned from Saudi Arabia on March 16, a 57-year-old man from Hyderpora, who had returned from New Delhi recently after attending ‘Tablighi Jamaat’ attended by people from Indonesia and Malaysia and a 22-year-old youth from Bandipora.
Sources said the four persons, who tested positive for the virus on Wednesday, were in contact with the Hyderpora resident.
Streets and markets remained deserted as strict restrictions continued for the seventh successive day on Wednesday to contain the spread of Coronavirus in the summer capital, Srinagar, and other parts of Kashmir valley, where about 80 people were arrested and several shops were sealed for violating lock down order during the last 48 hours.
The Srinagar administration on Wednesday said the doctors suggest actual cases in community could probably be more than those tested positive for Coronavirus and urged people to remain indoors.
Meanwhile, the J&K government on Wednesday said 5124 travellers and persons in contact with suspected cases have been put under surveillance and, so far, 11 cases tested have positive in Jammu and Kashmir of which ten are active while one has recovered.
According to the daily Media Bulletin on novel coronavirus (COVID-19) 3061 persons have been kept under home quarantine while as 80 are in hospital quarantine.
Persons who are under home surveillance stand at 1477 while as 506 persons have completed their 28-day surveillance period.
The Bulletin said that 326 samples have been sent for testing of which 294 tested as negative while as 21 reports are awaited till March 25, 2020.
The advisory urged public to strictly follow directions of the Prime Minister who has called for complete lockdown in the entire nation for the next 21 days in an effort to contain the COVID-19 Pandemic as it is essential to break the chain of its transmission.
“People are therefore appealed to stay in their homes and take the lockdown imposed by Government with utmost sincerity as carelessness of few can throw us into grave jeopardy, keeping in view the global experiences of countries which have been successful in containing the spread of COVID-19 through implementation of social distancing measures unlike some other countries where thousands of people have died,” reads the advisory.
“People can call toll free national helpline number 1075 for support, guidance, and response to health related queries on Novel Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19). Similarly they can also call Jammu & Kashmir Covid-19 Helpline Numbers 0191-2549676 (UT level Cell), 0191- 2520982, 0191-2674444, 0191-2674115 (For Jammu Division), 0194- 2440283 & 0194-2430581(For Kashmir Division).
On the implementation of Social Distancing measures, the advisory said that it is the key to stop and prevent the spread of Covid-19 from those who are infected to those who are not infected. The intervention includes remaining out of crowded settings, avoiding mass gatherings, and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet or 2 meters) from others.
However, there is no need to panic, take care of your health and protect others, says the advisory. Public in general is therefore advised to avoid un-necessary travel and use of public transport; avoid crowded places and large gathering and not to spit in public.
People must take basic precautions for personal hygiene; frequent hand washing with soap & water; and observing coughing & sneezing etiquettes.
Public is therefore advised to strictly follow the advisories issued by the Government from time to time. People are also urged to rely only on the information released by the government through the daily media bulletin to print & electronic media.
Furthermore, people are advised to refrain from spreading rumours and pay no heed to them at the same time.
