In view of the increasing threat of Corona virus, a lockdown has been imposed in Uttar Pradesh from 10 pm last night, which will continue till 5 am on 13 July. During this period, there will be a ban on all activities except essential services. In this regard, Chief Secretary RK Tiwari has issued orders.

The Uttar Pradesh government has said that all religious places will remain open during the 55-hour ban. There will be no restriction on them. On the other hand, all industrial factories in the city and rural areas will also be open. These have to follow social distancing. Also Corona Help Desk has to be set up.

Actually, the Chief Secretary gave the order on Friday. It had the flexibility to open all industrial factories in rural areas but there were instructions to close industrial factories in urban areas. Chief Secretary RK Tiwari on Friday issued a revised mandate in this regard.

During this period, all essential services like medical and essential supplies will remain open as before. There will be no restriction on the movement of persons working in these services, corona warriors, sanitation workers and people connected to door to door supplies.
