Correspondent DIPHU JUL 8 | Publish Date: 7/8/2020 1:54:20 PM IST

West Karbi Anglong autonomous district is witnessing a sudden spike in COVID19 positive cases even as Kheroni locality is the hotbed of the pandemic. On July 5, three ASHA workers of Kheroni health centre positive, a few days later on July 8,  two constables of Kheroni police station and one person who returned from Maharashtra have also tested positive.

After five executive members of Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council tested positive, three personal body guards of two executive members from Assam Police battalion, a driver and others closely associated staffs of few government officers have also tested positive.

A sense of uneasiness is currently prevailing among para military force CRPF at Diphu town and Khatkati locality of Bokajan after three CRPF personals tested positive.  Meanwhile, nominated Member of Autonomous Council Ajit Kumar Dey and another two persons of Diphu town have also tested positive. The sudden rise in the corona cases is clearly indicating that community spread has begun in both Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong district.
