As per news report of NDTV, worried by the persistent surge in cases the state government has warned people of another lockdown if they do not adhere to guidelines. "If people do not wear masks and the number of cases continues to spike upwards, the Government of Assam might be compelled to impose yet another lockdown. Although this is not a course we wish to take, if the numbers do not dip, we will be forced to take drastic measures yet again," Chief Secretary Kumar Sanjay Krishna told reporters.
