With the reports of Coronavirus affecting people in India, the Airport Authority of India (AAI) in association with Assam government has set up a screening counter at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International (LGBI) Airport in Guwahati, reports Northeast Now news.

A senior AAI official on Friday said that the check-in screening counter has been set up following the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) provided by the Centre for screening passengers travelling to different parts of  Northeast.

He said that so far no one is detected with any such symptoms similar to those infected with Coronavirus.

“We have international arrivals from Singapore and Bhutan at LGBI Airport. So we have set up the specialized centre here,” he said.

“We are following an SOP advised by the Central government and other health agencies. If somebody is detected with such symptoms, he will be taken to an isolated ward of the GMCH,” he said.

The official further said that AAI authorities along with Assam government have also put up sufficient publicity materials regarding the outbreak of Coronavirus and its symptoms.

He said that the airlines have also been instructed to announce before landing about the screening counter and that if anyone has some doubts he can get himself checked at the screening counter at Guwahati airport, he added.
