Compulsory COVID-19 tests for all who entered Nagaland after Dec 20



In the wake of the emergence of a mutated strain of the virus in the United Kingdom (UK), all persons who have come to Nagaland after December 20 have been asked to report to their district-level coronavirus task forces for compulsory COVID-19 testing, a senior health official said on Monday.

“Those arriving after issuing this circular are to self declare at the point of entry, inform their respective district task forces and self isolate themselves for standard testing protocols,” Principal Director of Health and Family Welfare, Dr Vizolie Z. Suokhrie said.

Nagaland on Monday recorded an all-time high COVID-19 recovery rate of 96.19 per cent as 20 patients recuperated from the disease, while 14 fresh infections pushed the state’s tally to 11,911, another health official said.
