With unabated surge in Covid-19 cases, the Assam government has mulled to impose another lockdown to control the spread of the deadly virus.

Assam chief secretary Kumar Sanjay Krishna indicated on Friday that if the current trend doesn’t improve and people continue to violate safety norms, another lockdown could be imposed in the state.

He said the government is mulling over what to do after unlock phase, which will end on August 31.

The chief secretary said that most people don’t wear masks in public.

“I fail to understand why people continue to violate safety norms. Noticeably, we are also witnessing around 7-8 deaths daily across all age groups. If people don’t wear masks and the Covid cases keep rising, we might be forced to enforce another lockdown,” Krishna said.
