As of now there is no COVID case in Assam: State Health Minister

Guwahati: Assam Health Minister Keshab Mahanta stated that there are currently no COVID cases in the state and made it clear that there will be no lockdown.

He said that a new SOP will be published based on COVID cases that the state would report.

The minister further said that the state government is ready to handle a potential spike in COVID-19 cases.

Mahanta said “We are in readiness from all corners. Our hospitals and doctors are well-prepared too.”

Mahanta advised the populace to comply by the rules laid out and adopt COVID-appropriate behavior to stop the virus from spreading.

Meanwhile , All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) Epidemiologist Dr Sanjay K Rai on December 28 said that the next 40 days will be very crucial for India. Dr. Sanjay K Rai said, “There are two types of surge-news cases, hospitalisation, and death. We should stop counting cases. We should talk about hospitalisation and death, which is very unlikely in the near future as we got immunity from natural infections. The vaccine only reduces the death and severity level of COVID-19 by 80-90 per cent. This is not effective to prevent infections. The surge will definitely come. Thus, it is very unlikely that hospitalisation and death will increase in January or February or in the near future.”
