The district administration and health department have already taken the swift action, to take their samples and the position will be cleared on receipt of lab test reports.
However, no incident of violence has been reported so far in Ferozepur as police cops continue to remain vigilant during day and night even by standing for more than their duty hours, said SSP adding that as many as 150 people have been booked in the fortnight for curfew violation, including four by using the ‘Cat-Eye’ of drones.
SSP said, the only remedy to put a check on the spread of the virus is to remain in isolation. He appealed to the people to cooperate with the administration to win the battle with corona.
