Four more patients have succumbed to the infection, taking the state's toll in the last four days to 12.
West district registered the highest number of new cases at 610, followed by 145 in Unakoti, it said.
The positivity rate stood at 14.86 per cent as 9,321 samples were tested, it added.
A total of 492 patients recovered from the disease in the last 24 hours.
"We are sorry to note that COVID appropriate behaviour protocol is often ignored in public places. If people don't respect the guidelines, the situation will turn worse by next month," COVID surveillance officer Deep Debbarma told reporters.
Meanwhile, due to the surge in coronavirus cases, the state government increased the night curfew duration by one hour to 8 PM to 5 AM from the previous 9 PM to 5 AM, state Information Minister Sushanta Chowdhury said.
