The big idea behind the creation of the CHDCOVID app was to inform people and share with them measures to adopt to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and/or protect others from the disease. The government also uses the app to inform its citizens on any notifications or advisories related to the matter and also encourage citizens to check for symptoms effectively. The CHDCOVID app is, therefore, a helping hand in this crisis. The audio and videos on the app provide guidance, information on quarantined homes and even reports on mass gatherings.
The passes do come with their troubles. Chandigarh is the capital of northern Indian states of Punjab and Haryana. On a normal day of shopping, you can be able to get Phulkari, Punjabi Dupattas, Juttis, Jams and Juices. Woollen garments, handlooms and other related artefacts. Therefore, on a normal day, the streets of Chandigarh are crowded. To curb the spread of coronavirus, the Chandigarh administration imposed a curfew on March 24th. It was only later that, curfew relaxations were introduced and curfew passes started being issued. This brought the question of who is to get a pass and who does not need one.
The passes have become a hot commodity. Whereas the UT administration allows curfew passes to select groups (vegetable sellers, government employees, chemists, emergency service providers, etc.) Mohali issues them to anyone and everyone. Passes from these two areas and Chandigarh are valid across the board. Chandigarh, being a capital, attracts people with passes from surrounding areas, beating the entire purpose of curfew. This means, that the Chandigarh administration would want the number of passes issued reduced. That would mean extra effort on finding and shutting down sources generating of fake passes.
Soon enough, people can request for groceries, medicines and other essentials right from the CHDCOVID app, not just an e-pass. The Coronavirus pandemic has proven to be a real issue. During the application for an e-pass, you can find a helpline number that has been provided by the Government of Chandigarh. By calling this number, one can get any kind of health assistance and also any other form of assistance. Adhere to stay safe and follow the guidelines.
