SIVASAGAR: At a time when there is a continuous upsurge in COVID-19 cases for the last few days and despite night curfew being imposed to curb the spread of infection, many local residents of Sivasagar have been found violating night curfew norms as they roam outside on the streets without any work.

A large number of violations have been observed near Station Chariali, Dolmukh Chariali, Rangghar Chariali, Jengonikotia area of Sivasagar, especially around Borpukhuri. Although police made rounds on the roads, a lot of people were seen walking, jogging, cycling or taking their dogs out for a walk at the bank of Borpukhuri.

Some residents said that only night curfew might not help in controlling further spread of COVID. A lockdown for a period of seven days or 15 days may help in controlling the virus. One resident said that COVID was spreading during the day hours due to negligence of people as they are disobeying COVID protocols, not wearing mask and not maintaining social distancing in public places like shops and markets. Some residents, on the other hand, demanded the district administration to take strict action against the violators.
