The institutions that are going to be involved in disseminating the messages include around 25,000 government dispensaries, 13.81 lakh anganwadi workers, godowns of Food Corporation of India, all paramilitary forces, 50,000 agricultural cooperatives, railway stations, government residential colonies, government offices, petrol pumps, gas agencies and government schools.
The key message of the campaign: ‘wear mask, follow physical distancing, maintain hand hygiene’.
Under the campaign, a Covid19 pledge will be taken by all and a concerted action plan will be implemented by centre and state/union territories authorities.
