Dimapur, April 18: Pharmacies located at Nyamo Lotha Road of Dimapur had to shut down their shutters on Thursday due to its close proximity to the quarantine zone designated at MP Road and GS Road.
Many pharmacies had to close down their shops after police personnel ordered them to close.
Talking to Nagaland Page, DCP-ZONE 1, Dr. Naieem Mustafa IPS said the pharmacies located at Nyamo Lotha Road had to be closed because people are frequently coming out in large numbers and since there is a quarantine zone within its vicinity, people may sneak through it from many passages and there are chances of people sneaking out.
“We cannot rule out the entry and exit from the quarantine zone and so it is necessary to close all the pharmacies in Church road. Public safety is a priority at present”, Dr. Naieem remarked.
Meanwhile, Chief Medical Officer, Dimapur, Dr Pangjung Sangtam has permitted Ideal Chemist, near Breeze Bakery, Nyamo Lotha Road to open from tomorrow. However, deliveries would be made by Red Cross Volunteers. (Page New Service)
