  15. Tireless and selfless Leadership under the District Collector has worked miracles in the district in curtailing effectively the spread of this deadly pandemics. The entire district will be highly grateful to the Collector and her entire team for saving many lives besides delivering the basic needs to their doorsteps. Leaving the government aids in a common place for the beneficiaries to collect them was another measure that was widely appreciated by the entire nation. True to the saying that ‘the public work is God’s work’, Nilgiris Administration has proved it beyond doubts.

  16. Really good to see the works being done by the district administration, having said that there is a wastage of swab collection kits, I came from Hyderabad on 13-06-2020 and corona testing was done at Airport and sent for Institutional Quarantine at my own cost for a day at a hotel, after I was declared negavite for COVID-2 I was released from Institutional quarantine and tried getting into kotagiri in a car where I was stopeed at Checkpost and asked to undergo SWAB Collection for one more time and asked to quarantine myself at hospital, which in my point is really useless undergoing test for 2 consecutive days . I am a responsible citizen and always ready to support the government/district administration during this hard time however wasting of kits on a same person and quarantining them at governments’s cost is really a pain, consuming all the government official time/energy.

    Administration should ask either to undergo test/quarantine natives of Nilgiris district people only at their district bypassing Airport rules, or if we are declared COVID-2 negative at airport please ask us to quarantine at home and not at governments cost.

    Hope district administration will consider my point and act accordingly to save resources and time of officials along with saving our time also.

  17. Kudos to the entire front line warriors headed by Our Respected Collector of the Nilgiris for their exemplary work on the fight against COVID-19.
