Manipur Govt Announces Total Curfew for 10 Days

In view of the possibility of a possible third wave of corona in the country, many states have restored a lockdown-like situation in their state. The Manipur government has imposed a 10-day complete curfew in the state from July 18 to prevent the spread of the delta variant of the corona virus. In Manipur, cases of corona infection due to delta variants have started increasing in the last few days.

In the last 24 hours, 1039 corona cases have been reported in Manipur, 465 in Arunachal Pradesh, and 581 in Mizoram. Manipur’s notification states that strict steps need to be taken to prevent the spread of the delta variant of Covid-19 in Manipur and to break the chain of infection. Therefore, curfew has been imposed in the state.

According to the notification, only essential services will be allowed during the curfew. In this, vaccination, testing, medical services, water supply, talcum and some other things will be exempted. State Chief Minister N Viren Singh said that this decision has been taken after the recommendation and consultation with several committees of the state formed on the Kovid-19 epidemic.

He said that to stop the spread of the epidemic, we are doing whatever we can to the best of our ability. We have installed several oxygen plants and intensified the vaccination campaign. Despite this, the situation is getting worse every day. The number of positive cases in the state has crossed one thousand and the deaths due to this have also increased by 10. For us this is a matter of concern.

The Puducherry government has extended the lockdown implemented due to Covid-19 till the end of this month. The lockdown was ending at 12 o’clock on Thursday night. Restrictions on socio-political functions and entertainment-related programs will remain in force in the state. On the other hand, the Odisha government has extended the partial lockdown till 6 am on August 1.

However, the movement of passenger buses, barber shops and beauty parlors were allowed in the state. Chief Secretary SC Mohapatra said that the situation of corona virus has not come under ‘complete control’ so far, so the partial lockdown has been extended. The lockdown was to end on Friday. The lockdown was imposed in Odisha on May 5.
