GUWAHATI, June 27: Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi has appealed to all sections of the people of Kamrup Metro to abide by the lockdown protocols as the district including Guwahati city are going into the 5th phase of total lockdown from Sunday.
In a statement here on Saturday, Mukhi said, “In spite of all sincere efforts to contain the spurt of novel coronavirus infection, positive cases in Guwahati are increasing alarmingly, thereby posing a grave danger on the lives of the people. Therefore, exhausted with all options to check the spike in viral infection, the government is bound to clamp a fresh bout of lockdown in the city for 14 days.”
“I, therefore, earnestly appeal to all sections of the people to follow lockdown guidelines and stop all avoidable and non-essential ventures outside to help the government control the spread of the virus,” Mukhi said.
He also said that cooperation thus rendered to make the 14 days lockdown successful and impactful would also amount to honouring the relentless and resolute demeanor of all the front line warriors who braving their lives have plunged into the battle of beating the pandemic.
