Guwahati | April 30,2020:
Assam government is mulling to evacuate 859 patients from the state who went outside for treatment and are now stranded due to COVID-19 lockdown.
Assam health and finance minister Himanta Biswa Sarma informed on Wednesday that the state government is consulting with the union civil aviation ministry and various airlines to try and bring back the patients by flight.
"Most of these patients have already completed their treatment and have expressed desire to return to the state. But since they are not fully recovered, it won't be possible to bring them back by road," he said.
At this moment it seems we will not be able to do it before May 3, but our efforts are on," Sarma said.
