Title: The Sudden flux of COVID-19 in Assam. 
Bodopress: 27/05/2020
With 147 new patients detected on Monday, the single biggest spike in a day for the state, the number of Covid-19 positive patients in Assam crossed the 600 figure mark with the current case being registered a total of 617 as of Wednesday, may 27 12:00 pm. 


Assam had stayed quite low and out of reach from COVID-19, the only few cases appeared was after the Tablighi outbreak on March, but the situation had been under control so far and most of the patients recovered. Now there has been a sudden rise in the Covid-19 patients that appeared after people who have returned to the state by roads and railways in the past three weeks. Till Sunday afternoon, nearly 60,000 people had entered Assam from other states in the region and across the country.


“The surge has happened in the past 7 days and hence our recovery rate has dropped to 16% in comparison to the national figure of 41%,” health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Sunday. He added “One positive aspect is that almost 90% of our total cases are of people who are in quarantine. We have adopted a policy of ruthless quarantine of 14 days for all returnees and it has helped prevent community outbreak of the disease,”


Assam now faces additional burden on quarantine facilities after the resumption of domestic flights from Monday, and the number of Covid-19 positive cases could also surge further. All passengers were taken by government vehicles to their respective districts, where they will be placed in quarantine.


 Assam has declared 14 days of mandatory quarantine and Covid-19 tests for all passengers. Although there was an apprehension that chaos and confusion would mark the first day, it was avoided as most of the flights to Guwahati got cancelled.
