Additional deputy commissioner (ADC), Bhandari, Tiameren Chang has issued a public order on July 29, stating that samples of death swine under Bhandari subdivision which were sent for test at ELISA Lab, Kohima, confirmed positive for classical swine fever (CSF) by the department of Veterinary and Animal Husbandry on July 10.

According to DIPR report, it stated that the earlier order on total ban of transportation of pigs and slaughtering of pigs for meat consumption purpose under Bhandari subdivision, is reiterated further and has asked the concerned department to continue monitoring the case for public health safety. He also asked the Sector Commander, CRPF (Neutral Force) to cooperate in imposing a total ban of butchering pigs at Merapani Bazaar.
In another order issued on the same day, ADC Bhandari also stated that no individuals or returnees would be allowed to enter or cross over to the state of Nagaland through Bhandari Sub-division without clearance from the district authorities and health authorities concerned.
The order stressed that the purpose of restricting any unprecedented entry of individuals and groups without safety clearance is in order, not to expose the public of the sub-division and the rest of Wokha district and beyond, to the dangers of the COVID-19 pandemic spread. 
No unauthorised persons shall be allowed to enter the state of Nagaland, Wokha district or Bhandari sub-division through Wokha-Merapani road or any undesignated points, nor allowed to go out of Wokha district as COVID-19 positive cases have reportedly surged in the neighbouring districts of Golaghat and Jorhat in Assam, the order stated.
