18 Hours Curfew In Andhra Pradesh From Wednesday

Following the developments in various states that have gone in for complete or partial lockdown due to ever growing number of Coronavirus cases, the Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy government in Andhra Pradesh too has taken a similar crucial decision on Monday.

Starting Wednesday, the Jagan government announced imposition of partial curfew across the state for 14 days. All the shops will be open from 6 am to 12 noon and during the morning hours, Section 144 under Criminal Procedure Code would be imposed from 6 am to 12 noon. 

After 12 noon, only emergency services will be allowed to operate. It would mean there would be no public or private transport on the roads and no shops would be allowed to run. In a way, it is a virtual lockdown in the state.

Now that the elections are over and there is no possibility of any public congregations anywhere in the state, the decision to impose partial lockdown has been taken to break the chain of the Coronavirus.

Ironically, the Telangana government has not yet taken any decision with regard to imposition of lockdown or prohibitory orders in the state though the number of Coronavirus cases has been on the rise with every passing day.

Even US experts and Indian Council of Medical Research also have suggested imposition of lockdown for a few weeks to bring down the curve of Coronavirus.
