Shillong, May 31 : Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Sunday visited Ampati, the district headquarters of South West Garo Hills to take stock of COVID-19 situation and preparedness amid three returnees who got infected with the virus. “After the stranded people returned to the State there were some positive cases in Ampati. Therefore, I felt the need to meet the team and to tell them that we are all together and to boost up their morale,” Sangma said.
“There are a few more phases of stranded people coming in so once this is through we will be able to see the overall pressure come down to a large extent,” he added. Appreciating the frontline workers in their fight against COVID-19, the Chief Minister said, “I think the team is working in a very positive manner and even the community has participated and supported this. Happy to see the arrangements made out here and I am sure that all stakeholders will work together.” Stating that elected representatives are really working hard along with the community, Sangma said, “I think we can clearly see that the Society and people have come together and decided we together get through this.” (UNI)
