I Urge People to Come Forward and Get Tested: Himanta Biswa Sarma
GUWAHATI: Releasing the names of all positive patients of Covid-19 in Assam, state minister Himanta Biswa Sarma urged people who came in contact with either of the patients to come forward and get tested for the virus.
"All patients are undergoing treatment. They will be tested every 5 days and if the test comes negative, they will be released," informed Sarma.
He added that the names of the patients have been released so that people who have been in direct contact with them can come forward for testing in their nearest centre.
Once people are cured, they can return to their normal life and need not be socially distanced, he said.
