Assam to quarantine all passengers coming by flight

May 21, 2020 20:35 IST

The BJP govt in Assam decided to quarantine all passengers arriving in the state by flights for 14 days. Speaking to NDTV, Assam's Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said that the state govt will continue the policy of ruthless quarantine, whether a person comes by air, rail or road. He also said that the crew members will be exempted from quarantine. This decision differs from the view expressed by Union Civil Aviation Minister during a press briefing that it is not practical to quarantine all passengers.
