As the cases of the novel coronavirus spread rampantly across the state, infecting people with every passing day, the Assam government, in an attempt to break the chain of this deadly infectious disease may impose restrictions for both inter-state and intra-state movement. Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that even though there has not been any decision taken to impose a complete statewide lockdown, the government is planning to prohibit inter-district movement of people for 15 days, which had been started from May 16.
The CM Himanta Biswa Sarma also appealed to the people to adhere to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) issued by the government in order to keep the spread of the virus at bay. On Thursday, the SOP issued by the Assam State Disaster Management (ASDM) called for the closure of all shops and commercial establishments by 11 AM daily and introduced an odd-even formula to be applied on the movement of vehicles, and also listed out groups that are exempted from the prohibitions.
Even though he pointed out that the number of cases has shown a decline, he said that the situation cannot be predicted and it is best for both the government and the people to remain vigilant.
