Lets show empathy and abstain from spreading rumors

This recent development has caused a furore in the city, as the hospital ambulance as well as police vehicles are going to each house where such people are staying.

In a case today evening, a lady and her husband who returned from Kuwait 13 days ago, were also picked up from their house in Bohrawadi, Udaipur.  The lady had earlier, on arriving from Kuwait, voluntarily gone to hospital for a checkup and had stayed there for 3 days, before being released after her tests confirmed NEGATIVE.  Her stay was marred with uncertainity and there was no facility available at the quarantine centre at MB Hospital.  Today, as a precautionary measure, she also had to join the ranks of those who never had their checkup done.  As the vehicles arrived under her home, there was panic in the area, and people assumed that she was a positive case of Coronavirus, and messages spread on social media.  This caused a lot of distress to the couple as well as amidst her family... both immediate and extended.

PEOPLE SHOULD SHOW MATURITY AND EMPATHY IN SUCH CASES AND REFRAIN FROM SPREADING FALSE INFORMATION IN CASES WHERE THEY HAVE NO IDEA AS TO WHAT IS GOING ON. This is the time to be supportive and help each other, to come out of distress, rather than create furore and panic among the community.

Udaipur CMHO, Dr Dinesh Kharadi, in his earlier press conference, requested all toe inform the task force on 0294-2414620 if they are aware of anyone who has come from one of the above countries to Udaipur.  As of now, no sample of test results have tested Positive.

District Transport Officer Kalpana Sharma informed that Buses entering the district from Mangalwar, Khara Quan and Ratanpur border are being scanned for fitness. Their data base is being prepared and sent to the CMHO office. Any suspicious cases are being sent to hospital or are being home quarantined.

PLEASE NOTE... how we as individuals and society and community behave, will go a long way in addressing our character.  We need to come out of this together. Help each other and assist the administration - Police, UMC, Collectorate and Health Department in helping us.
