COVID 19 and its impact on India with special reference to Assam.

The first case of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Indian state of Assam was reported on 31 March 2020. As of 5 January 2021, the Government of Assam has confirmed a total of 89,468 positive cases of COVID-19 including 67,641 recoveries, three migrations and 234 deaths in the state. The state's as well as northeast's largest city, Guwahati, has been worst affected by coronavirus.

The COVID-19 outbreak in Assam has been traced to persons who attended the conference of the Tablighi Jamaat religious organisation at Nizamuddin Markaz (Delhi) and did not report to the authorities after their return to Assam. Out of the total patients of COVID-19 in Assam – 37 are either attendees or contacts of Tablighi Jamaat. The COVID-19 tally in Assam also shoots up due to some pilgrims of Ajmer Sharif Dargah (Rajasthan), who arrived in the Silchar city of Cachar district by bus on 6 May. Later on, 10 pilgrims tested positive for coronavirus and the others were sent to quarantine as per guidelines. The state has also begun witnessing a spike in the number of COVID-19 cases as the migrant workers and many people of Assam stranded in other parts of the country returned to Assam. Many of them tested positive for coronavirus when they were in quarantine in the respective quarantine centres of the state.

In the fight against coronavirus, many frontline warriors of COVID-19 have also tested positive in Assam. Though many of them have later recovered, a very few have lost their lives. So far, the Assam Police has registered 3,005 COVID-19 cases among its personnel. Of them, 2,274 have recovered, 723 are undergoing treatment, while eight have lost their lives to the virus.
