His Majesty The King is in Phuentsholing to oversee measures to control the spread of Covid-19 in the community and manage other issues related to the pandemic, as the border town remains in lockdown.
Lockdown is a difficult experience for everybody, especially when service delivery is in question. Efficient service delivery is more important than easing the lockdown.
The government is positive that Bhutanese who received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine, AstraZeneca, will receive the second dose as per the schedule — eight to 12 weeks after the first dose.
Two weeks after the lockdown began in Phuentsholing, lifting it looks quite promising today considering the absence of a positive case from the community in the past one week.
