Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma recently announced that those who have not been fully vaccinated will not be allowed to enter public places such as hotels, markets, and courts in view of rising cases of COVID-19.
There has been a continuous surge in COVID-19 cases in Assam in the last few days. However, despite a spike in daily infections, Sarma has ruled out the possibility of a lockdown in the state.
“Those not fully vaccinated will not be allowed to enter public places like district courts, hotels, markets, etc. from tomorrow. There is no situation of a lockdown in Assam yet, but wearing a mask is a must,” ANI quoted the Assam CM.
Assam on Friday reported 2,348 new COVID-19 cases, 890 fewer than the previous day, taking the overall caseload in the state rose to 6,40,636, according to the state health department.
