Meanwhile, the center has decided to refocus on the 15 lakh people who traveled from abroad to India.

In Assam, after a disastrous third day when hundreds of market opened,  the fourth day of lockdown started gingerly but in Upper Assam, there is an underlying picnic mood while in the Muslim dominated char areas, enforcement has been a problem as in some places it has failed.

Meanwhile, Assam is adding 700 fresh MBBS final year students to the front line as the second line of defense by giving them a prep class which includes even the final year nursing students as well as those ward boys who are newly recruited.

There has been not a single case in Assam, so far but there is tremendous preparedness as critical equipment like PPE are flown in while news field hospitals are coming up.
