Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 14: On second successive day five more deaths, three from Jammu and two from Kashmir Valley, reported from the Union Territory.
Although whole Jammu and Kashmir is witnessing unprecedented spike in Corona cases, Jammu district is emerged as hotspot of the deadly virus.
Jammu-the winter capital of the Union Territory, is witnessing a surge in fresh positive cases but nothing concrete has been done by the arrogant Babus. Those at the helm of the affairs are just doing cosmetic exercises for publicity but on the ground situation is worsening with every passing day.
First time after eight months, single day positive cases has touched the figure of almost 600 on Friday which is a warning signal.
As reported earlier by this news paper, health institutes in Jammu region are not prepared to face deadly third wave due to the causal approach of the authorities.
In June 2021, the Jammu and Kashmir Government with much publicity had announced to start preparation of an action plan for tackling a possible third wave of COVID in Jammu and Kashmir as per suggestions of the expert committee headed by Prof Mohammad Sultan Khuroo.
As reported earlier, the Health and Medical Education Department was asked to constitute a medical advisory team consisting of field experts in virology, epidemiology, and microbiology to provide multi-dimensional scientific recommendations for evidence-based scientific management of COVID but nothing has been done in this regard. In the months of October and November 2021, Jammu was emerged as hotspot of dengue due to casual approach of the authorities.
After the complete failure of the Jammu and Kashmir Government, the Union Government had deputed a team of experts to control the dengue. The experts deputed by the Union Government were unhappy with steps taken by the local authorities in tackling dengue in the Union Territory in general and Jammu province in particular.
