ISLAMABAD: The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) on Sunday issued detailed instructions to all the federating units for managing Eid-ul-Azha under strict Covid-19 safety protocols with cattle markets to be established outside the cities across the country.

The NCOC has directed the provincial authorities to ensure that in the light of these guidelines, coronavirus standard operation procedures (SOPs) would be implemented in the Cattle Markets.

It was mandatory for all staff and livestock vendors to be vaccinated whereas the administration of the market was responsible to provide facilities for hand sanitizer, masks and rapid antigen test (RAT) at entry points, it added. However, there was ban on buying and selling of sacrificial animals inside the city.

The Forum has also released a proposed layout of model cattle market alongwith important guidelines to be followed in the market including, screening of all persons entering the cattle market, availability of veterinary doctor to check animal health at the entrance and arduous control measures mainly at entry, exit, marshalling area and control on number of persons inside cattle market through token system etc that may be devised as per need. The guidelines also included that elaborate sign posting or guidance arrangement to prevent overcrowding should be ensured alongwith strict compliance of social distancing and wearing of mask.

Moreover, on site continuous awareness campaign through displaying of banners should be made whereas no physical touching or checking of animals would be allowed. The market administrations should ensure availability of emergency services at each market, masks, sanitizers, water, shade etc at the venue along with regular disinfection of the area.

It added that a delegation led by DG NCOC visited Gilgit-Baltistan to review the overall situation and vaccination process in the region. The delegation inspected the vaccination centres at Gilgit, Shiger and Hunza and assured the stakeholders that the NCOC has decided to vaccinate 100 percent of the registered population in all tourist destinations. A special team was also formed in Gilgit-Baltistan to prevent coronavirus surge and improve vaccination process.
