CAB, vaccination essential to keep Covid-19 at bay: DC Kupwara  

KUPWARA, JULY 12 (KINS): The Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kupwara, Imam Din today once again reiterated his appeal to the people of Kupwara district to continue the use of mask and maintenance of Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB) and other SOPs to overcome the resurgence of the Covid.

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.

The Deputy Commissioner said this while addressing a presser here.

Giving details, the DC said that the positivity rate has declined to 0.4 percent, while Recovery rate has gone up to 98 percent which is a good sign of satisfaction for the district. He said that out of 13947 positive cases, 13641 have been recovered till date.
