State health and family welfare minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the next two weeks will be very critical to maintain social distancing and monitor the coronavirus situation in Assam.
He said that the maximum people from Assam who were outside the state have returned to the state till now. “If we suppose that by March 22, all those traveling abroad have returned to the state, then from March 22, next 14 days will be very critical for us,” mentioned the minister.
“By now, the number of incoming passengers has reduced significantly. If we find no positive cases in the state till the next two weeks, then we might be able to say that we have broken the chain,” said Sarma.
