KOHIMA: Nagaland registered 11 new COVID-19 positive cases over the past 24 hours.
The total 11 cases with seven in Dimapur, two in Kohima, and one each in Phek and Wokha, took the tally to 12427.
The number of active cases increased to 174 as a result of this, while three more patients have recovered from the infection, bringing the total to 11995.
Meanwhile, after five of its inmates tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, a building in the heart of Dimapur city was reportedly sealed.
People, for the most part, have not followed COVID protocols since the pandemic was unlocked over several stages. Even in Dimapur, the public has largely disobeyed the protocols, prompting district officials to order police to prosecute violators.
The COVID protocols have already been strictly enforced at the Dimapur airport.
However, there seem to be no checks at the railway station, including at the Dimapur inter-state check gates.
The state government, according to officials, has yet to issue a directive for enforcing the protocols at the railway station, checkpoints, and other entry-exit points.
