Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on March 22 urged the people of the state to remain indoors for next two weeks and move out only if it extremely necessary.
Thanking the people for supporting the shutdown call by the prime minister, Sonowal said that people should carry forward the movement and keep themselves safe.
The chief minister also expressed his gratitude to the medical and paramedical staff as well as other officials who are working day and night to protect the nation from COVID-19.
He said that the health department is taking all measures to keep the people safe and called upon them not to be complacent as no case of COVID-19 has been detected so far in the state. He also urged people to maintain social distancing and follow the advisories of the health department.
The chief minister also appealed people who have come to Assam from outside to voluntarily undergo medical check-up even though health department is making all out efforts to track such persons and carry out their health check-up.
