The District administration is living no stone unturned to control the spread of pandemic disease coronavirus. There is an ample amount of information available on social media regarding the cure and symptoms of the virus but due to some rumors and fake news residents are living under constant threat. Therefore, intending to provide authentication information about the outbreak, the administration has launched a web portal that contains detail information about the virus.
The information is available in Marathi and English language. The portal contains information about who is prone to infection, how the infection spreads and its symptoms.
The guidelines issued by WHO and precautionary measures are also available. The web portal provides accurate information about what precautions the residents should take.
Apart from this the helpline numbers issued by the NMC, state government, control room, and other information is uploaded on the portal. A city-based social media analyst Ajit Parse has designed the web portal.
