Telangana these two villages set an example before everyone to fight against Corona Virus. Here two villages in erstwhile Warangal district have proved that in ample measure. Even as the second wave of the pandemic engulfed not just urban areas but also rural pockets, some of them remote, Gollapalli, a village in Devaruppula mandal of Jangaon district and Chainpaka of Chityal mandal in Bhupalpalli district, have stood their ground and successfully kept the virus at bay.
For your information let us share that a population of 1,000, Gollapalli has not reported even a single Covid case in the ongoing second wave. The village, which secured the national Nirmal Grameen Puraskar 10 years ago for maintaining cleanliness, continues to ensure cleanliness which helped the residents to protect themselves from Covid.
Meanwhile, Chainpaka village in Bhupalpalli district, with a population of about 450, has also been Covid-free so far. “Though two residents of the village developed fever, they tested negative for the Covid-19,” said G Shashidhar Reddy, a villager. He added that the people of Chainpaka have been strictly following the Covid-19 protocol. “Whenever our villagers meet others, they wear masks and maintain physical distance,” he added. The Gram Panchayat’s sanitation staff are regularly spraying sodium hypochlorite in the village.
