DERGAON, March 10 -�Despite the threat of coronavirus in Assam, the flow of tourists to the Kaziranga National Park (KNP) has not been affected.
The normal functioning of the park continues with tourists from different parts of the country, visiting the park as usual.�
Although the recent visit of a US citizen to Kaziranga, who was later found to be affected by coronavirus in Bhutan last week, created a hue and cry among the people who reportedly came into contact with that particular person.
The officials, including the driver of jeep safari and others, also underwent medical tests but found to be negative.
In the last three days, the flow of tourists to the park was found to be normal. KNP director P Sivakumar said the coronavirus scare has not affected tourism in Kaziranga.
Ramesh Ch Gogoi, divisional forest officer (DFO), Eastern Assam Wildlife Division, Bokakhat, also expressed a similar opinion about the issue.�
�We are doing our regular job without any fear of coronavirus but we are on high alert,� he added.
