Kodagu Deputy Commissioner Charulata Somal said that 82% vaccination has been achieved in the district against Covid-19 and the officials are now working towards the target of 100% vaccination.

The deputy commissioner paid a visit to the Community Health Centre in Napoklu on Wednesday and gathered information from the officials.

As there is a positivity rate of more than 2% in the district, all possible efforts are being made to contain the spread of Covid-19 infection, she said.

On behalf of the general public, Gram Panchayat member Machetira Kushu Kushalappa and others requested the deputy commissioner to take steps to clear the encroachment of the land belonging to Government PU College. The DC assured them that she will look into the same.

Visiting the Nadakatcheri office, Charulata Somal inspected the working of the revenue department. She later visited the vaccination centre at Government Model Primary School.
