COVID-19 has not only proven to be a health crisis but also a livelihood crisis, transforming itself into hunger and malnutrition havoc.
Mass vaccination drive which is referred to as a shield against the virus is now initiated by most of the constituencies in Northeast India. With half of them already achieved the feat.
Besides, the role of COVID warriors cannot be anyhow ignored for achieving this.
Bad roads, poor internet connectivity, minor glitches in the vaccine management application, or crossing myriad km through hilly terrains, the COVID Warriors have successfully acquired their part.
When people across the nation are still reluctant to receive the vaccination, Northeast India is following some unique steps to maintain the flow, thereby rewarding the civil bodies to encourage the initiative.
Earlier, MLA Rajkumar Imo of Sagolband Assembly Constituency, Manipur also announced cash rewards for localities within his constituency to strengthen the inoculation drive.
“Am announcing vaccination reward/prize of Rs 50000/, Rs 30000/ and Rs 20000/ for the top three polling/localities which has the best vaccination ratio by the end of August. Thank the Health Department and Imphal West DC for coordinating and making it possible.” -tweeted by the MLA.
