Directorate of Health Services Kashmir (DHSK) on Thursday directed medical officers in the division to bar the staff in their jurisdictions to desist from media interactions saying “contradictory and confusing messages are being circulated,  which misinforms the public and creates unnecest and avoidable panic”.

While citing the reason, a circular issued by DHSK, Dr Mushtaq Ahmad Rather asked Chief Medical Officers/Medical Superintendents/Block Medical Officers of Kashmir division to issue instructions to all the staff under their administrative domain “to desist from media interaction”.
