The Assam government on Friday has taken the decision to withdraw the earlier order of exemption of mandatory screening of incoming passengers through airports and railway stations who received two doses of vaccines.
The state government has decided to screen incoming passengers on arrival at airports and railway stations although they are fully vaccinated.
This decision was taken due to the rapid increase of Covid 19 cases in the state.
The government has decided to screen the patients as most of the people are infected even after they were inoculated with two doses.
The decision to withdraw the exemption of people who have been vaccinated with two doses of Covid 19 vaccines from mandatory testing on arrival at airport and railway stations in Assam will come into effect immediately.
A part of the official notice by the Health and Family Welfare Department stated –
“Whereas, Covid positivity is observed even in some of the persons who have received two doses of vaccination in a few instances.
Therefore, this earlier office order dated June 25, exempting people who have been vaccinated with two doses of Covid vaccine from mandatory testing on arrival at airports or railway stations in Assam, is hereby withdrawn with immediate effect.”
