Employees Are No Longer Obliged To Make Biometric Attendance: Government on Coronavirus
Many questions are coming to surface with the outspread of coronavirus like can a face mask stop coronavirus? Or for how long the virus survives on non-living surfaces. According to some reports, it stays alive for several hours on non-living surfaces. Due to this the government has come up with prevent techniques. The employees are no longer obliged to make biometric attendance. Instead of this, they have to note down their attendance in a register. All government departments are to follow this order which is issued by personnel ministry.
After the outbreak of coronavirus in China, all the other countries have been taking precautions as they are also on the verge of getting infected by this virus. Similar is the case in India. There are about 42 confirmed cases in India. As prevention is better than cure, the government is emphasizing on prevention. More awareness is spread to avoid the disease from spreading rapidly in the country. Hence, employees will make an entry in attendance register rather than making biometric attendance. This is to be followed till the end of March (31st March).
For instance, washing hands regularly and keeping them sanitized. Furthermore, citizens are requested to prevent touching unhygienic area. A major reason of the spread is by touch. Hence, people are requested to cover their hands with gloves and to put on a face mask to prevent getting infected from this fatal disease. Moreover, people are also advised to avoid traveling as in India more than half of the coronavirus patients are foreigners. People with traveling history to the infected countries are advised to get a check up for the same.
