Agartala March 25, 2020: The scare of Coronavirus has further intensified in Tripura following the tracing of a patient carrying Corona positive virus in Aizawal . This was found in the body of an air passenger who had come from the Corona vulnerable country of Netherland in Europe. Goaded by fear the people in the state have started complying with the guidelines issued by the prime minister Narendra Modi last night and by the chief secretary yesterday. Apart from this, police have taken a serious initiative to curb unnecessary movement on streets of Agartala as part of enforcement of anti-Corona guideline.

The authority of 'Dainik Sambad', state's largest-circulated daily, have decided to cease publication of the paper from tomorrow though the edition of the paper, being worked today, will be available tomorrow. A spokesman of the 'Dainik Sambad' said that the decision had to be taken under compulsion because the paper could not be sent out of Agartala because of disruption in transport. A number of staff  members have also objected to continued publication of the newspaper. The Hawkers Association have also decided not to distribute newspapers as they face ill treatment from subscribers who fear that delivery of the newspaper will be accompanied by transmission of virus. The publication of 'Dainik Sambad' will remain suspended till March 31 as will be the distribution of newspapers by hawkers.

The Tripura Newspaper Society, apex body of newspaper owners and editors, have decided to suspend publication of newspapers till March 31 as the staff members are reluctant to carry on work while hawkers are unwilling to distributed papers because of ill treatment by subscribers in their households. A joint statement issued by Subal Dey, editor-proprietor of 'Syandan Patrika' and Arun Nath, Editor-proprietor of 'Tripura Observer' made this clear. All the newspapers will resume publication from April 01,2020 and editions will be available to people on April 02,2020.
