Udupi, Oct 17: The Udupi district administration today launch a door-to-door anti-covid campaign under the slogan ‘My family, my responsibility’.
With Unlock 5, people have forgotten about the pandemic, and hence anganwadi workers and BLOs will visit homes to spread awareness on the issue, said Udupi deputy commissioner G Jagadeesha.
He told reporters that pamphlets will be distributed to every house, and health workers will speak about the preventive measures to be adopted to tackle Covid-19, read out a pledge on the measures to be followed, and take a signature from the family. A campaign by ASHA workers to check oxygen levels with pulse oximeter will be undertaken.
In a first of its kind initiative in the state, teachers who are taking online classes will have to speak for five minutes on how covid can be prevented. Zilla panchayat CEO Naveen Bhat said that the pamphlet will contain details on testing methods, contact details, hospital details and all aspects related to the novel coronavirus. The PDOs must ensure that the pamphlet reaches every house in the village.
