There is the fear of COVID-19 spreading fast in Assam with the second wave of the pandemic hitting several states across India.
The Union health ministry has directed all states to step up measures and implement all COVID-19 protocols, especially in public places to contain the spread of the virus.
With large election rallies being held in different parts of the state ahead of the Assam Assembly elections, there is a possibility of the virus spreading among the public.
