KOHIMA, May 16 - Nagaland has no case of coronavirus, but it also does not have adequate health infrastructure to deal with an outbreak, a cause for concern for officials who believe prayers have kept the State safe from the contagion. The State with a population of over 20 lakh has no medical college. It set up its lone testing laboratory for COVID-19 here after directions from the High Court, but has not been able to make it functional due to non-availability of an essential compound.

�It is all God�s miracle that has kept Nagaland safe from the COVID-19 pandemic till date,� Chief Secretary Temjen Toy said.

The other reason is the hard work of the Health workers in dealing with the suspected cases, he said.

Nagaland at present sends samples to Assam and Manipur for testing. The Chief Secretary said the biggest threat is the virus entering the State with the stranded people coming in from other parts of the country. � PTI
