COVID-19: 2 villages declared red zones to prevent spread of disease in Shopian

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Shopian, March 30 : In wake of the fresh positive cases for coronavirus, the administration here on Monday declared two villages in Shopian district of south Kashmir as red zones and their surrounding villages as buffer zones to prevent the spread of the pathogen.

The villages include Sedow, Ramnagri and its nearby areas, an official of the administration told.

“The area has become more vulnerable as far as further transmission of the COVID-19 virus is concerned. It is necessary to break the further transmission of the disease in the area and it becomes imperative to take stringent precautionary measures like declaring some villages as containment/red zone and surrounding areas as a buffer zone,” the officer said.

The officer directed the officials concerned to ensure the supply of essential commodities as per laid down protocols in the villages and warned of stern action against anyone who tries to violate the orders. (GNS)
