With Covid-19 cases breaching the 3,000-mark for the second consecutive day in Gujarat, the state government on Tuesday announced a night curfew from 8 am to 6 pm in 20 cities from Wednesday till April 30.
The government’s decision came after the high court observed that the virus situation was getting “out of control”. The court suggested that a curfew or lockdown be imposed for a few days to break the infection chain.
In its order, the government restricted the crowd at weddings to 100 people and to 50 for political and social functions. It also directed government offices to remain closed on all Saturdays for this month.
