Nagpur in lockdown, first since
restrictions were lifted in June
Roads across Nagpur wore a deserted look as the city entered a
week-long lockdown on Monday.
People in the city, during their morning walks, were seen
following COVID-19 safety guidelines.
Kishore, who was on his morning walk, told ANI, "Morning walk is
important to maintain a healthy immune system to tackle corona.
People respect the government guidelines regarding lockdown"
"There is no crowding and social distancing is properly
maintained during the walks. People are wearing masks," he
"Unless people sanitize themselves regularly and follow social
distancing, we cannot be sure that lockdown will contain the
coronavirus," he added.
Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra, the state
government on Thursday decided to impose a lockdown in
Nagpur district from March 15 to 21.
Only essential services such as vegetable and fruit shops and milk
booths will stay open, according to the order issued by the district
administration. Read More
