CMOs advised to counter prejudice

IMPHAL, 10th Apr: The Directorate of Health Services, Manipur has issued a memorandum asking all CMOs to get themselves involved with civil organisations in countering prejudice against discharged inmates of quarantine centres. The memorandum said that because of misinformation about COVID-19, the prevailing situation caused by the pandemic in the state may result in increased chaos and unnecessary social disruptions following the discharge of inmates from the quarantine centres. “In this regard, all the CMOs are requested to involve with PRIs, local club members, Meira paibis, faith-based organisations, CSOs, etc., to counter such prejudices through awareness in their community as well as to support the family of the discharged inmates”, it added.
