    Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb appealed to the public to not panic after 12 jawans of the Border Security Force (BSF) from the 138th unit in Tripura’s Ambassa tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

    Deb urged the citizens to follow COVID-19 guidelines and ensure their own safety.

    “We are working vigilantly for your safety,” Deb tweeted.

    With 12 BSF jawans testing COVID-19 positive, the State’s total number of cases stands at 16, out of which two have been discharged.
