Truck drivers emerge as messiahs for residents of snow-clad Lahaul-Spiti amid lockdown

Lockdown made it worst for the residents of Himachal Pradesh's Lahaul-Spiti who already suffer the impact of extreme cold and lack of availability of goods due to snowy roads.

The truck drivers have emerged as messiahs as they are providing goods of daily usage to the far flung areas of the region.

According to Pawan Thakur, a Rescue Incharge at Koksar post, "Screening is being done at Gulaba checkpost.

Data is maintained when they enter Koksar checkpost as valley is wide, with a difficult terrain making it tough to trace people.

Two doctors have been deputed, local volunteers sanitise vehicles every day." Himachal Pradesh has recorded 65 confirmed cases of coronavirus and two deaths till now.

Lockdown has been extended till May 17.
