Dimapur, May 24: A person in Bokajan was tested positive for Covid-19 today. The man had been in a quarantine centre in Bokajan since May 18 and his test results came today evening confirming it to be positive, according to Time8 reports.
The said person had landed at Bokajan from a Shramik Train on May 18 last and since then he had been in the quarantine centre.
This is likely to create panic in neighbouring Dimapur, which is just 18 kms from Bokajan town.
Meanwhile, Assam is contemplating to seal the inter-state borders from June 2 to check further flow of home-bound people by road as the number of Covid-19 cases in Assam is reaching 400 mark.
Assam’s health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “In last three days our Covid-19 positive cases have dramatically increased. We are thinking of sealing the inter-state borders again from next month. The domestic air travel is resuming and there will be more frequent running of trains and so there is no need of people to incur higher amounts to hire vehicles and come by road.”
