Sangrur, August 30

Residents of Kakra village in Sangrur district have banned the entry of the Health Department staff.

Reason: Villagers do not want to share details of people showing symptoms of Covid-19.

On Saturday, the villagers had passed a resolution stating that if anyone from the Health Department wanted to visit their village, he/she would needed to take permission from them. Residents also made arrangements to quarantine patients at their village gurdwara.

SAD leader from Kakra village, Harvinder Singh, said they had passed a resolution to ban entry of the Health Department officials. "We have made arrangements to quarantine patients at the gurdwara. The entire village is united. We will not allow the authorities to collect samples or shift any patient from the village. The government has failed to make proper arrangements at the hospitals. Videos about lack of facilities at the hospitals are going viral. We do not want to send any villager to the government-run Covid care centres," he said.

Bhawanigarh Subdivisional Magistrate Dr Karmjit Singh said, "Officials are working round-the-clock to provide facilities to Covid-19 patients. People should cooperate with the Health Department."

He said, "Residents should not believe in rumours. Every patient should start his treatment after testing positive," the SDM said.
