With continuous efforts of people, we shall definitely win the battle says Himanta Biswa Sarma on Instagram


Guwahati: Assam Health Minister  Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma on Tuesday evening requested the people to not panic and  maintain Social Distancing in the wake of COVID-19.

Dr. Sarma took to his official Instagram handle to spread awareness.

“From preparing various stadiums, hotels etc into quarantine centre, to ensuring best healthcare facilities in government & private hospitals for both COVID & non COVID patients, Assam has come a long way in its efforts to contain the pandemic. It is only because of these efforts that for a long period of time, Assam didn’t observe any major spike on positive cases.
However, life never stops & in order to streamline our activities on the policy of ‘Jaan Bhi Jahaan Bhi’, as advised by Hon PM Narendra Modi, we need to bring normalcy in economic activities, as well as help people stranded in various parts of the country.
The recent increases in positive cases should not deter our will to contain the pandemic. Assam has done better than many other states in terms of sample testing, screening & recovery rates.
We are strong headed & determined. With the continuous efforts of people, we shall definitely win the battle against the global pandemic.
I request people to not panic, and keep following #SocialDistancing while ensuring that they wear mask & maintain hygiene.
Never lose hope. Life shall be normal again. Till then, #StayHomeStaySafe.”
