Total cases China

The city of Wuhan, where the new coronavirus outbreak originated in China, conducted 222,675 nucleic acid tests on May 16, the local health authority said on Sunday, nearly doubling from a day earlier.

Wuhan kicked off a campaign on May 14 to look for asymptomatic carriers - people who are infected but show no outward sign of illness - after confirming last weekend its first cluster of COVID-19 infections since its release from a virtual lockdown on April 8.

The number of tests carried out on May 16 in the city of 11 million residents was more than the 186,400 tests conducted on May 14-15, and was also the highest since the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission started publishing the data on Feb. 21.

Wuhan is conducting the testing on a voluntary basis.

Residents who were previously tested do not need to participate in the campaign. Those who test positive now will be notified as soon as possible.

No confirmed cases with symptoms were identified May 14-16, though 28 new asymptomatic carriers were found, according to daily reports published by the Wuhan health authority.

New Delhi: The countrywide lockdown, which enters its fourth phase from tomorrow, is likely to see a lot of relaxations, especially in terms of public transport, sources indicate. With a limited number of passenger trains running since last week, it is the aviation sector and road transport, including metro services, which are expected to get some relaxation now.

The guidelines will be announced this evening for the phase, which is expected to last for two more weeks, until May 31.

While announcing the extensions last week, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said it would come in a "completely different form", with new rules.

"Corona will be with us for a long time but our lives cannot revolve around it. We will wear masks, we will follow doh gaj doori (six-foot distance), but we won't let it derail our targets," he stressed.

He had also asked states to submit their blueprints for the lockdown and its gradual removal --a move that set off speculation about a step forward in starting of economic activities.

Sources indicate that it is likely that the government will allow partial opening of malls and shopping centres, which could be on an odd-even basis.

Standalone shops have been operating for more than two weeks, a step forward compared to the shops selling essential commodities were allowed during the first phase of the lockdown.

It is also likely that metro travel will be allowed now, subject to strict rules of social distancing.

Construction activity is likely to fully resume in cities -- except in containment zones.

The phase 4 of lockdown comes as the country crossed the 90,000-mark in coronavirus cases, recording the biggest single-day jump of 4,987 new patients, bringing the total to 90,927. The figure includes 2,872 patients who died and more than 34,000 patients who recovered.

Four states - Maharashtra, Delhi, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat - which have recorded the highest number of cases in India also reported the biggest surge in COVID-19 count in the last 24 hours.

IMPHAL, May 16: In an alarming turn of events, the State’s COVID-19 active cases have jumed to five in the last 48 hours, taking the total positive cases to seven.

Two individuals who went to Mumbai for medical treatment and returned by hired bus tested positive for COVID-19 today as a 22 year old girl from Churachandpur who returned from Chennai by train arranged by the State Government tested positive too.

Following the spike in the number of positive cases, the State Government has stopped issuing of pass to people who wish to return to the State.

The two individuals who tested positive today were among the 36 people who reached Imphal from Mumbai in hired bus and ambulance on May 13. After reaching Imphal, they were put in the quarantine centre of State Family Welfare Training Centre, Lamphelpat. Throat swab samples of the two individuals were tested at RIMS today and they were found to be positive, informed a source.

Incidentally, the COVID-19 positive individuals are mother and son. While the mother is 75 years old, the son is 48 years and they are residents of Moreh. After reaching the State, the girl from Churachand-pur was quarantined at St Stephen School, Saikot. The test result of her sample was available only this evening even though it was sent to JNIMS on May 14 and it turned out to be positive.

So far, the State has reported seven positive cases of COVID-19. Samples of all the people who travelled together with the mother-son duo from Mumbai to Imphal have been tested and all of them were found negative, according to a press release issued by COVID-19 Common Control Room spokesman Dr Khoirom Sasheekumar Mangang.

Notably, the third person to test positive for COVID-19 was also a returnee from Mumbai while the fourth case happened to be a nurse who returned from Kolkata.

Whereas the nurse from Kamjong district was quarantined at NIT Langol, the third positive man from Khurai Heikrumakhong was quarantined at a community quarantine centre of Khabeisoi.

While the man from Khurai Heikrumakhong and the nurse from Kamjong have been taken to JNIMS isolation ward, the mother-son duo from Moreh have been admitted in the isolation ward of RIMS.

Taking serious note of the sudden spike in COVID-19 positive cases in the State during the last 48 hours, the Chief Secretary issued an office memorandum today whereby all curfew passes issued earlier were cancelled. Nonetheless, a counter has been opened at the gate of Old Secretariat for issuing fresh curfew passes for Imphal West and Imphal East districts. The office memorandum said that all applications for curfew passes should be addressed to the Deputy Secretary (Home).

Applicants should give mobile numbers for the curfew passes would be gene- rated electronically and this time curfew passes would not be issued in bulk, it said. For districts other than Imphal West and Imphal East, the concerned DCs may issue curfew passes but movement should be confined within their respective districts.

If private individuals and organisations wish to donate relief items to the masses, the same may be handed over to the ‘food banks’ opened at DC offices. Meanwhile, Special Secretary (Home) issued a notice today whereby issuance of pass to people returning to the State by private or hired vehicles has been suspended temporarily. However, passes would be issued as usual if it is for medical purpose, it mentioned.

Following confirmation of the young woman from Kamjong and the mother-son duo from Moreh as COVID-19 positive who were quarantined at NIT Langol and State Family Welfare Training Centre, Lamphelpat, Imphal West DC Naorem Praveen has declared certain areas of Lamphelpat and Langol as containment areas.

IMPHAL, May 9: The Covid-19 pandemic has unwittingly strengthened the fraternal shared between hill people and plain people of Manipur, remarked titular king Leishemba Sanajaoba.

Representatives of Tang-khul Naga Long (TNL), Tangkhul Naga Wungnao Long (TNWL) and Hong-man (Khongbal Tangkhul) presented vegetables gathered from hill areas to the royal palace today.

Conveying his gratitude and acknowledgement to the Tangkhul bodies, the titular king remarked that the COVID-19 pandemic has strengthened the hill-valley relationship.
Just as the whole world has been suffering because of the COVID-19 pande-mic, people in both the hills and valley of Manipur have been suffering equally and the suffering has brought the hill people and plain people closer, Sanajaoba said.

Keeping aside all differences, hill people and plain people have been helping each other in this testing time, he noted.

There is nothing political in this hill-valley cooperation but entirely humanitarian. It is a spontaneous response to the grave situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic, said the titular king.

He remarked that nothing is more gratifying than the oneness shown by hill people and plain people in such hard times.

“I have been working towards this end for the last 25 years. It seems the Almighty has blessed us this time with what our forefathers wished”, Sanajaoba said.

Noting that the vegetables brought by the Tang- khul bodies are priceless, the titular king conveyed heartfelt gratitude to TNL, TNWL and Hongman villagers.

He said that the vegetables brought today would be distributed to underprivileged people.

TNL executive member Hopeson Horam, TNWL vice-president Kashung Tennyson and Tangkhul Shanao Long, Hongman president Merina Muinao and their team were presented a stole each by the titular king.

In the meantime, the Sangaiprou Kabui Youth Organisation presented masks to Leishemba Sanajaoba.

Mao Gate: Lack of man power dwarfs efforts

Posted by

Acute lack of manpower at Mao Gate is disturbingly likely to hinder the State's efforts to keep coronavirus at bay, said sources.

Already exhausted medical staff and police personnel monitoring and screening incoming buses and trucks 24x7 are now dealing with heavy traffic at Mao following the launch of evacuation missions to bring back stranded natives.

Stranded Manipuris from different States started flowing in after May 3 .

But only a handful of staff is stationed at the centre for screening the incoming natives, truckers carrying essential commodities day and night.

Only 15 medical staff are overseeing the screening, said the source.

Altogether, 225 stranded State natives from Guwahati, Assam had reportedly entered the State in 11 different buses till the time of filing this report.

All the outgoing vehicles from Manipur, bound for Dimapur are reportedly screened at Khuzama Check Point, Nagaland while State bound vehicles are screened at Mao.

Work overload and lack of parking space are major problems facing the medical staff and police personnel.

Additional COVID-19 trained medical staff and police personnel should be deployed to assist and reduce the stress all staff stationed are facing, said the source.

When the entry point, Mao is being treated as one of most important check points to keep coronavirus at bay, there should be adequate medical facilities and ambulance to effect the screening, added the source.

Meanwhile, many more buses have left for Guwahati to bring back the stranded State natives.

Source in the Health Department said that they may reach Mao late night today or early Friday.

The 22 individuals are working in 5 different private hospitals in Kolkata.

As West Bengal is among the coronavirus hit States, they will be quarantined on arrival.

They will be tested for COVID-19 and quarantined at State TB Hospital, said the source.

Nagaland - Inter-district movement of stranded citizens start

Morung Express

The journey home for 2,434 citizens in Nagaland began on May 7, as the first batch of inter-district passengers headed to their home districts. 106 buses were employed into service to facilitate their travel.

The movement will continue till May 9.

Principal Secretary, Home, Abhijit Sinha informed that the entire exercise is being supervised by the Empowered Group headed by the Additional Chief Secretary and Finance Commissioner.

In Kohima, 1,109 stranded persons were transported in 38 buses to their respective districts. 12 buses went to Mon, 5 buses to Tobu (Tuensang), 8 buses to Tuensang, 3 buses to Mokokchung, 3 buses to Wokha and 7 buses to Dimapur.

From Kohima, 311 passengers were transported to Mon via Assam, 209 passengers to Tobu via Tuensang, 250 passengers to Longkhim HQ and Tuensang HQ, 90 passengers to Mokokchung, 76 passengers to Wokha and 173 passengers to Dimapur.

400 private vehicles in the State capital have been issued one way permits to enable the stranded persons to return to their respective districts.

Kohima Additional Deputy Commissioner, Lithrongla Tongpi Rutsa informed that a total of 6,688 persons in Kohima have submitted their names to go to their respective districts.

Alongside the requisitioned buses, 400 passes have been issued to those stranded persons to go to their respective districts in their own vehicles. This is subject to one way traffic permission.

Nagaland Housing & Mechanical Minister, Tongpang Ozükum, who is Minister in- charge of Task Force Kohima district on COVID-19 along with Kohima DC, Gregory Thejawelie and other officials also inspected the facilitation centre at Kohima Local Ground.

In Dimapur, a total of 1,311 people were able to ride back home. Fifty two buses, both state-run NST and private, were pressed into service to ferry the stranded citizens.

The take off point was at the Badminton Stadium, which also acts as the facilitation centre in the district.

Out of the 1,311 persons who managed to get their tickets back home, Mon district recorded the highest number with 310 people evenly distributed in 10 buses.

The government is bearing all the journey expenses of these stranded people.

The exercise will continue for another two days. However, some have expressed apprehension that given the large number of stranded locals in Dimapur waiting to go back to their home districts, the 3-day exercise might not be enough.

Meanwhile 5 buses were pressed into action in Mokokchung. Of this, 3 buses went to Mon, one to Dimapur and one to Tuensang.

A report from the DIPR, Mokokchung informed that pastors of Mokokchung Town Baptist Church (MTBA) reached the NST station and prayed for the passengers for their safe journey. The pastors along with the church workers also handed over lunch packages to all the passengers.

In Kiphire, 44 persons headed to Kohima and Dimapur in four buses. Deputy Commissioner, Sarita Yadav along with her subordinate officers and the SP were present during the departure.

Donation drive carried out by three women for those at the quarantine centres in Dimapur which received a pouring in of help from many people.

In the middle of these challenging times of a widespread disease and a nationwide lockdown with many left alone (and helpless) and looking (for) relief, three women and a Church in Dimapur stepped up to provide extremely important things for the homeless and stranded at the isolation (to protect from spreading disease) centers in Dimapur.

Following a discussion, Asha Sanchu from Miqlat Ministry; Gugu Haralu, Social (person who uses action and strong words to support or oppose something) and Member of Peace Channel and Ela Sani from Wastefuls' Home visited the isolation (to protect from spreading disease) centers in Dimapur where the homeless and stranded were looking (for) relief during the lockdown. There, they interacted with the people and collected the list of needs and decided to conduct donations drives for them.

Donation Drive @ Dimapur, Nagaland

"The people in the centers are homeless people, poor people (who ask for money); some of them are from neighbouring states who are small time businesspeople, shop owners, workers, left alone (and helpless) travellers. There were also children and women, including (having a baby developing inside the body) women. We wanted to see what can be done, so we started identifying the needs of the people in the isolation (to protect from spreading disease) centers," says Gugu Haralu, who in turn shared these needs with her local church Kuda Baptist Church, Dimapur.

The response was immediate. A day was assigned for the Church members to come and donate any of the needs listed. These included clothes, toys, soap, tooth brush, toothpaste, food etc. Apart from these, the members were asked to donate anything they wanted from their homes in their own ability (to hold or do something). The (thing that's given/work that's done) of the Church members was huge with the Church donating clothes, inner wears, shoes, toys, sanitary extremely important things, sweets, snacks, food items including cash.

"We didn't expect much but our car was full and we were so blessed. We sorted out the clothes and distributed the same day. With the cash donated, we bought the extremely important items such as sugar, milk, tea etc. To get the support of the church, it just broadened the possibility of blessings pouring in not just for us but for those who receive and give. It was such a joy to see the faces of these people," says Haralu.

Appreciating the support and (thing that's given/work that's done) of the Church, Ela Sani said, "It was a (making a person realize that he or she is not the greatest thing in the world) experience to be part of the team for this effort to begin (doing something) in this very hard time."

"All efforts made by every church member towards this combined support is an example of bringing out our kind side and sharing hope and love to our neighbors, our fellow brothers and sisters in need," added Ela.

With the help of the District management of Dimapur, EAC Chumoukedima, Vivekananda welfare foundation team of volunteers, Childline Dimapur and the emotional support from Nagaland NGOs Forum (NNF), the three were able to distribute the items to the centers.

The three women hope the act will encourage others to also add/give and extend support to those in need during the lockdown. For Gugu Haralu, the effort to begin (doing something) is an example of how "total (of everything or everyone) role starting from an individual can keep the candle of people/(the kindness of people) burning".
