NORTHEAST INDIA | MARCH 21, 2020:
The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has further stepped up screening and testing passengers in the 12 operational airports in northeastern region for coronavirus, officials said on Saturday.
As per the health and other officials, no positive coronavirus case has appeared in the eight northeastern states, including Sikkim, yet.
AAI's Regional Executive Director (NER) Sanjeev Jindal said screening of passengers — including by infrared thermometers — has been further intensified at the Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport and at 11 other airports in the northeastern states.
"The airport in Guwahati is the only one in the northeast to operate flights to Singapore and Bhutan but the government has already barred the operation of the international flights," he said.
