The website, which is managed by the department of health and family welfare and conceptualized and designed by Fluorescence Communications, will have sections of stories in the form of texts, photo features and videos.

According to CM Singh, the web portal features crowd-sourced stories collected from people who have been COVID-19 positive and recovered, volunteers who have worked at quarantine centers, selfless work carried out by individuals, NGOs, civil society organisations (CSOs) and medical professionals, among others.

In a televised interview, Singh said: “The platform will act as source of positivity and showcase such stories that will highlight the perseverance and determination of the people of Manipur in fighting the global pandemic within the tiny state.”

He also urged people in the state to share and contribute their inspiring stories while fighting against the infectious virus.
