As per several reports, it is being speculated that a third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic may strike India in mid-October and infect children the most. Taking this into consideration, L-G Sinha instructed the health administration to mobilise human resources and build more pediatric care units to ensure intensive testing in all areas of the union territory. He further asked the district administration to make sure that the testing facilities are available in vulnerable areas so as to detect the spread of the virus at its earliest. During a review meeting with the COVID-19 task force, Deputy Commissioners, and Superintendents of Police, Sinha gave instructions on the COVID-19 situation and containment measures to be followed.
L-G Sinha also directed a joint team of police and civil administration to enforce COVID-19 protocol strictly across the union territory and take note of administrative actions taken against guideline violators.
