Assam Health Minister Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday said that the state government has issued three new protocols for containing the COVID-19 pandemic in Assam.

Firstly, passengers coming from Karnataka and Maharastra will have to do a mandatory COVID test in Assam even if they have conducted the test before coming to Assam.

Secondly, every day one lakh COVID-19 tests will be conducted ahead of Bihu in Assam.

Thirdly, Doctors and Nurses in Assam have already taken the COVID-19 vaccine. So, there is a qualitative difference between this year and last year. Also, there is no requirement for PPE kits for them. So, the treatment will also be different this year.
