Dimapur: In a step to reinforce the current Covid-19 district task force of Dimapur, the Nagaland department of health and family welfare has come up with a series of duty detailment orders.

According to a reliable source from the department, a series of meetings with the health minister, the commissioner and secretary and the principal director of the department, the move to reinforce the Dimapur district team was taken.

In an order released on August 4, the department made changes in the current district task force. The CMO of Dimapur has now been reverted as the deputy director at the department. The source from the department mentioned that the changes were made to give a break to the current team of the Dimapur district task force and further added that if needed they would be brought back again.
