RANCHI: Even though several states have imposed restrictions -- including mandatory negative Covid test reports and home quarantine -- on travellers from places that are recording a spike in new infections, the Jharkhand government is yet to take a decision on enforcing similar safety protocols. Notably, Odisha, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, West Bengal and Delhi, have imposed similar restrictions to keep new infections in check.
Earlier this week, the state health department recommended strict surveillance of people entering Jharkhand from areas with a high burden of new cases, including Maharashtra and Kerala.
However, no decision has been taken in this regard as the state executive committee has not met since the recommendations were made. On February 23, health secretary K K Soan had asked the disaster management department to make it mandatory for passengers from these states to carry a negative RT-PCR Covid report not older than 48 hours to enter Jharkhand.
The health department has directed deputy commissioners of five districts to set up multiple sample collection points and TrueNat testing facilities at Birsa Munda International Airport and six railway stations to monitor passengers. Specific instructions have also been issued to the Ranchi airport officials to share the details of passengers from these states with IDSP and the Ranchi district administration.
In a letter to DCs of Ranchi,
, West Singhum, East Singhbhum and Bokaro on Friday evening, Soan asked them to ensure that samples of passengers coming from Kerala and Maharashtra are collected at railway stations and the airport. The railway stations identified for surveillance include Ranchi, Hatia, Chakradharpur, Dhanbad, Bokaro and Tatanagar.
The letter also directed the district authorities to ensure that all passengers from any train originating or passing through Maharashtra and Kerala must be subjected to thermal scanning and samples must be collected for all those showing any Covid symptom. Ranchi DC Chhavi Ranjan said: “The directions will be implemented and I am in touch with the Railways as well as the airport authorities over the arrangements.”
