The Jammu & Kashmir government through the media bulletin informed that 14 new positive cases of novel Corona virus (COVID-19), all from Kashmir division, have been reported today thus taking the total number of positive cases in Jammu and Kashmir to 106. It would be in place to mention here that media bulletin has included two cases that were detected late on Saturday.

The bulletin said that 5,566 persons have completed their 28-day surveillance period. It said that till date 1,551 samples have been sent for testing of which 1,429 have tested as negative and 16 reports are awaited till April 5, 2020. It urged the general public to stay indoors, strictly implement social distancing measures, disclose recent travel history to COVID-19 affected countries and report any contact with positive cases voluntarily.

It said chewing smokeless tobacco products (Gutkha, Paan masala with tobacco, Paan and other chewing tobacco products) and areca nut (supari) increases the production of saliva followed by a very strong urge to spit. Spitting in public places could enhance the spread of the COVID-19.

It has asked the people to engage children in indoor activities to cut down boredom. Keep them in contact with their friends, cousins and loved ones by calling them up or through video calls.
"It is important to reassure your children whenever needed, listen to their concerns and try answering their queries related to the outbreak. Do not avoid their questions related to COVID-19 or speak to them harshly. Make them understand that things will be better if we take proper care," reads the advisory.
The advisory also called for taking special care of elderly persons by reminding them to practice hand washing as often as possible, making sure to tell them to cover their mouth and nose with bent elbow when they cough or sneeze. "Watch out for any symptoms of COVID-19 and reach out for medical help, if necessary. Make sure they eat healthy food and get good sleep," it said.
The general public has been advised to avoid unnecessary visit to hospitals, in case anyone develops fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, seek medical advice promptly by calling on COVID-19 helpline numbers so that they can be provided correct medical advice and directed to the right health facility, if needed.
