Punjab govt to give free food packets for poor families in home isolation

Punjab govt to give free food packets for poor families in home isolation

Chandigarh, Sep 5 (UNI) To encourage testing for Covid, Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday announced distribution of free food packets to poor families who do not want to get themselves tested for fear of isolation impacting their meager earnings.
The Chief Minister said the distribution of free food packets would help encourage poor families to go for early testing, which was imperative to check the spread of the pandemic and control the increasing fatality rate in Punjab.
The programme will start from Patiala, one of the worst affected districts with widespread false propaganda, the Chief Minister said and directed other districts to make similar arrangements for distribution of free food packets to poor Covid patients in home isolation so that they get motivated to come out for testing and do not live in fear of losing their earnings during isolation.
