To whom it may concern

COVID19 team of Nagaland, can you please urgently make a local video or notice as per the WHO guidelines on “How to take care of a COVID positive patient at Home”? I know that it all seems quite early to prepare for such steps and maintaining social distancing is still a luxury for most of our population. But we all agree that an early spread of awareness can help us prepare for the worst. I am from Kohima, living in the Western part of Europe which was once among the hotspots of COVID19 in the world chart and it worries me to see that Nagaland is no more a Green Zone. I have seen firsthand where the number of active patients had outnumbered the health-care facilities and those who had mild symptoms or those who were asymptomatic were asked to be taken care of at home. Despite having one of the best healthcare systems in the world, these countries still struggled to cope when the peak struck, and I cannot imagine the impact it will have in our population and our fragile healthcare system. I am also aware that the measurement and the tips to handle this pandemic could vary from country to country or even from state to state within a country but please execute the strategies like as if we have already hit the peak. No, I am no epidemiologist nor is my intention to lecture anyone on how to do their job (which you may best know) but just as a concerned citizen of Nagaland who has already been in a hotspot with a lesson to share. Sorry for the spam if such video or message on above mentioned request has already been taken care of. Big Thank You in advance. God bless our Nagaland.
