Guwahati, Apr 13 (KNN) Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal has asked the Baksa district administration to take measures to stop movement across the Indo-Bhutan border in the district and to enforce the lockdown completely.

Chief Minister Sonowal directed this to the Deputy Commissioner and Superintendent of Police while visiting the district to assess its preparedness to deal with novel coronavirus outbreak.

Sonowal said that in view of the COVID-19 outbreak the district administration should essentially focus on three pronged agenda like protection of health, maintenance of supply chain and complete adherence to lockdown to wage a war against novel coronavirus.

He also asked the DC to convene the district level task force meeting regularly to maintain constant vigilance on the situation of the district.

In Baksa district no positive case has been detected so far and constant care has been taken to stop any kind of infection of the virus.

Altogether 13 quarantine centers and 4 isolation wards have been set up in the district.

Chief Minister Sonowal also asked the DC to maintain robust supply chain in the district so that there is no dearth of essential commodities and also to ensure the quality of goods provided to people during the lockdown period.
