Losou also called for helping one another and reach out to those who are in need “if you have more and make someone happy and share the blessings of God.”
Lockdown should continue
A government official Senti Longchar said that his main activity during the lockdown period was gardening and animal husbandry.
He opined that the lockdown should continue till vaccines are available in the country.

Stop camping, picnics

Stay indoors and stay safe
