March 26, 2020 | Qaisar Baba/Srinagar

The youth of Latoo, a village near the Line of Control in Ladakh territory, have implied a phenomenal and unique way to put the pandemic Caronavirus at bay by keeping a water tank, soap and sanitizer near the entrance for visitors for washing hands properly before entering.
A graffiti urging the visitors to wash their hands before entering the village shows the seriousness of the fight against the deadly virus.
The village which is about 22 km away from the main Kargil town set an example at their own by making available hygiene products of soap and sanitizer at many places near the entry point and boldly written words on rocks “no one is allowed without washing the hands” as a measure to control pandemic Coronavirus.
The people of Latoo believe that by keeping a water tank, soap and sanitizer near the entry points of the village, the youth want to convey the message that “Cleanliness” is the first and far most thing to protect from the pandemic Coronavirus.
A volunteer who identified himself as Javed Ahmad said that the youth of Latoo collectively took this step and not only put the facility of washing hands near the entry points but also kept available for the people inside the village also.
He said actually our youth want to convey that people as well as the villagers of Latoo should give stress to live as much clean as they can to protect themselves from this dreaded Virus that has sparkle a wave of uneasiness among the people and besides claimed so many lives.
“The people of the village especially the elders does not have the idea how to protect themselves from the spread of Coronavirus”, he said and added by this procedure all people including those who are educated will avail the benefit of this facility by washing their hands several times during the day.
Zaheer, who is not a resident of village Latoo but has been posted there as a school teacher, said that the pictures which had gone viral on the social media have been taken by the youth to spread the message.
He said it is very difficult for a Photo Journalist to reach here and cover the story. The motive behind putting photographs on Social media was just to aware people who are living in villages to adopt the “cleanliness” policy to protect themselves from the spread of Coronavirus.
An official of an NGO JKS Chandigarh, who are working for the upliftment of schools situated near the borders, Jai Kumar, said the villagers of Latoo are very strong and hard working and in 2010 they built the main road leading to the village in minus 10 degree Celsius temperature.
Meanwhile, people of the Latoo village complained of non availability of drinking water but despite of this the youth of the village have put a water tank near the entry point and filled it from the waters of Shingo river.
It is pertinent to mention here that Kargil and Ladakh regions was separated from the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir by the authorities following the abrogation of article 370 and 35A with the creation of Jammu and Kashmir Union territory and Ladakh Union Territory on August 5, 2019.
