Instil Self-Discipline
The rise in Covid-19 cases is troubling. Katagram area in Surat is the new hotspot. Within the industry we are hearing about people who have been infected. In Surat alone, 300 positive cases have been reported so far amidst diamond polishing units.

A protocol has been worked out, after a meeting with the Municipal Commissioner and the Mayor. All polishing units will have only two workers working and workers will be provided Ayurvedic medicine with warm water throughout the day.

However, the virus seems to be spreading the most through diamond packet distribution, as it comes in contact with many people. Manufacturers have been asked to strictly sanitise the packets before giving them to workers. All said and done, maintain social distancing, wear masks, wash your hands and most importantly, be mindful and instil a sense of self-discipline, you are doing it for the welfare of humanity and the industry.
