Alarmed by sudden spike in Covid-19 cases, the Assam government has decided to promulgate 14-day ‘total lockdown’ from Monday midnight in Guwahati, night curfew in the entire state and ‘complete lockdown’ on Saturdays and Sundays in major cities and towns.

Briefing the media, Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that all government and non-government offices, markets, commercial and industrial units would be shut and no public or private transport would be allowed to operate in Guwahati. He said 12-hour night curfew from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. would be imposed from Friday evening and strictest lockdown measures would be maintained in the first seven days of the 14-day lockdown.

Medicine shops, hospitals, physiotherapy centres, railways, airliner services, banks, ATMs, telecom, power and transmission, transportation of essential goods, petrol pumps, media and hotels with quarantine facilities would remain functional.
