Madhya Pradesh Lockdown

Bhopal: Owing to the rising cases of coronavirus, the Madhya Pradesh government has decided to put all urban areas under lockdown from 6 p.m. on Friday evening to 6 a.m. on Monday morning.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, talking to reporters on Thursday, said that he has reviewed the coronavirus situation in the state and has decided to place all urban areas under lockdown for two days from 6 p.m. on Friday evening to 6 a.m. on Monday morning.

"During this time, all the urban areas will be completely shut", he said.

"Weekend Lockdown"

The lockdown has already been clamped in 13 districts of the state on Sundays. Now the government has decided to do a 60-hour lockdown in all urban areas starting Friday.

The state government a day earlier had announced a night curfew in all cities of Madhya Pradesh. But after a record 4,043 corona cases were discovered on a single day on Wednesday, the government announced a Saturday-Sunday lockdown.

The chief minister has appealed to all to wear mask, maintain social distancing and wash hands regularly.

"In view of the pandemic, use face masks, maintain social distancing and sanitise hands frequently... Not getting infected with coronavirus is the biggest service towards the state today," the Chief Minister's Office tweeted in Hindi.

In the past three weeks, the state government imposed lockdowns in Bhopal, Indore, Jabalpur and Gwalior on Sundays and extended the curbs to some other cities last Sunday.
