In this regard, a meeting of district level officers with DC, Thoubal Rangnamei Rang Peter as the chairperson, was held at the conference hall of the DC on Tuesday.

During a media interaction after the meeting, Rangnamei Rang Peter said that vaccinations are the only means of protection against the COVID-19 virus, and it is imperative that every citizen gets vaccinated. He also implored the masses to come out voluntarily and get vaccinated during the mass COVID-19 vaccination drive.

The meeting held on Tuesday was also attended by the SDOs of Thoubal and Lilong along with the superintendent of District Hospital Thoubal amongst others.
