Urges people, business community to wear masks, maintain social distance
Srinagar: Amid the surge in Covid-19 positive cases especially in Srinagar, Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KCC&I) President, Sheikh Ashiq Ahmad and General Secretary, Farooq Amin have urged business community and people to follow Covid Appropriate Behavior (CAB) in letter and spirit to prevent the further spread of the virus.
In a joint statement Ashiq and Amin said, “The KCCI fears that lowering of guard by people and business community may take situation back to square one. So we make a humble appeal to everyone to follow the SOPs.”
“As the administration is mulling another lockdown given the spike in positive cases, we urge people to prevent spread of virus and imposition of lockdown,” the statement said.
“The KCCI urges business community and people to wear masks, maintain physical distance, sanitize hands, and ensure vaccination.
People should cooperate with the administration in containing the virus,” it added.
“The successive lockdowns have adversely impacted the livelihood and economy of people in the past, KCCI had to put strenuous efforts to convince administration to ease restrictions. However, if the spike in positive cases is relentless, the lockdown is inevitable which will hurt revival of business in Kashmir,” the statement added.
