GUWAHATI: Assam chief minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma on Sunday chaired a video conference with the deputy commissioners (DCs) and superintendents of police (SPs) of the districts to discuss the COVID-19 situation in the state.

“I directed DCs to regularly visit District Hospitals from today and ensure efficient odd hour management of critical Covid patients even late in the night,” Dr Sarma mentioned in a series of tweets.

“I asked to entrust one ADC in each district with responsibility of vaccine centers. Directed SPs to enforce stringent restrictions to contain the pandemic while ensuring containment zone regulations. In this time of distress we must give best service with a humane heart,” he added.
