GUWAHATI: The total COVID-19 positive cases in Assam have risen to 57,714. As per official information the single-day positive cases on Thursday was 1332.
Of the fresh COVID-19 positive cases 11 are employees of the Assam Legislative Assembly.
Talking to the media, Assembly principal Secretary Mrigendra Kumar Deka said, "In three days till Thursday, 270 of our staff members were tested out of which 11 have tested positive."
While the upcoming session of the Assam Legislative Assembly is scheduled to start from August 31, the detection of the infection in 11 of the staff members and needful follow-up actions beginning with thorough sanitisation and fresh arrangements to deal with the functioning of the Assembly may prove to be a new challenge to the Assembly authorities.
