He said the enforcement teams are vigorously enforcing the SOPs to prevent the future spread of infection.

He further said that Government has formally launched free vaccination for 18 year and above age group and the targeted population is responding overwhelmingly. He appealed to the left out 45 year and above persons to come out for vaccination, as vaccination is the only protection available to counter Coronavirus.
