Villagers set up barricade to help anti-COVID lockdown

GUWAHATI: Complementing the government’s efforts
to ensure social distancing by imposing
lockdown against COVID-19 pandemic, villagers in certain parts of Assam have
put up barricades at the entry of their respective villages so as to bar
outsiders from coming in.

Villagers of
Laopati at Talap in Tinsukia district of Assam have set up bamboo barricade at
the entry to the village to restrict movement of outsiders to the village in
order to ensure social distancing that has been made mandatory by the government
to fight the deadly novel Coronavirus.

Similarly,
villagers at Kolajan Peeyang in Dhemaji district too have barricaded the entry
to their village to prevent visit by outsiders much to the relief of the local
administration.

Such
exceptional efforts by common villagers have steamed up the combat against
COVIT-19 amid reports about police being forced to use force to make defying
people stay indoors during the anti-COVID-19 lockdown in some other parts of
the state.
