Explaining the mechanism further, the DC said that the people undergoing quarantine have to download cova app mandatorily and they are tracked further by cova admin portal. If a person jumps quarantine for the first time, then he/she is issued a warning but on repeating the same offence, an FIR is registered.

The DC exhorted the people to follow all the safety protocols especially those undergoing the quarantine period. He said that the District Administration is fully committed to effectively combat the corona virus pandemic but it needs the wholehearted support of the people to see its efforts succeeding.
