Srinagar, March 21 (IANS) In order to ensure comfortable and safe stay of persons who have come from abroad and are under quarantine, the Srinagar administration has fixed roles and responsibilities of officials assigned to different quarantine centres as in-charge of relevant facilities.
Issuing strict instructions in this regard, Srinagar District Magistrate Shahid Iqbal Choudhary has warned that lapses will lead to strict action against concerned officials.
The fixing of roles and responsibilities came after the district administration released adequate funding to different departments for strengthening the response mechanism against the coronavirus threat.
