The doctors in Kashmir fighting the spread of COVID-19 Sunday said the travellers coming from outside need to be tested before they enter inside J&K.
“Seeing the travellers who test positive for COVID-19, we should get travellers getting into J&K tested outside before they enter, be it air or road travel,” Head Department Chest Medicine GMC Srinagar, Dr Naveed Nazir Shah tweeted.
Expressing concern over the impact of the coronavirus, medical experts here say that it would take people some time to understand how to live with coronavirus.
“Information, education and communication are important to spread the word,” said President Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK), Dr Suhail Naik.
In the past few weeks, more than one lakh people in J&K have been evacuated and returned home from different parts of India and abroad.
J&K has so far recorded 28 deaths to coronavirus while 2446 have been infected.
In Kashmir division, Anantnag, followed by Kulgam and Srinagar are the districts having highest number of coronavirus positive cases and the number is increasing.
