As India has officially crossed the 90,000 mark of positive Coronavirus cases, the centre has extended the nationwide lockdown by two more weeks i.e till May 31.
MHA issues order to further extend #lockdownindia till 31.05.2020, to fight #COVID19— Spokesperson, Ministry of Home Affairs (@PIBHomeAffairs) May 17, 2020
New guidelines have permitted considerable relaxations in #Lockdown4 restrictions. States to decide various zones, taking into consideration parameters shared by @MoHFW_INDIA#IndiaFightsCOVID19 pic.twitter.com/AeMHvowaaH
The new guidelines have also allowed movement of inter-state passenger vehicles and buses with the mutual consent and agreement of both states involved.This movement will obviously be carried out with restrictions and will be prohibited in the contaminated areas.
However, the intra-state movement of buses and vehicles will be decided by the state. We hope that the availability of public transport acts as immediate aid for the migrant labourers on the road.
Offices can function only if they don't fall under the contaminated zone and if the employees download the Aarogya Sethu App.
As we write this, 90,927 positive cases of COVID have been registered with a death toll of 2,872. We hope you're staying home, keeping safe and taking all the necessary precautions.
