Lockdown window to remain extended from 7 AM to 1 PM today
As there was comparatively less crowding during the lockdown window on Friday, the State Government has decided that shops selling essential commodities will remain open from 7 AM to 1 PM on Saturday as well. Stating this, chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat said that extending the window on Friday had resulted in lesser crowding so this system will be continued in the future too. This decision has been taken to provide adequate time to citizens to purchase essential items without crowding and while maintaining proper social distancing. Four-wheelers will remain prohibited on Saturday as well.
Relaying his message to the public through Facebook live, Rawat said that the recent reports of three IFS trainees who had tested positive for COVID-19 has come out negative and they are recovering. Congratulating the doctors and other health workers involved in their treatment, the CM said that this shows and capability of the state’s doctors. Rawat said, “A big battle is being fought against COVID-19 under the leadership of prime minister Narendra Modi and we will surely be victorious. The police and administration should not stop those working in the pharmaceutical industry and if possible facilitate their transportation. A number of social and religious organisations along with individuals have come forward to provide assistance and we are grateful to them. Many have expressed their wish to donate in the CM relief fund and a number of them have given large amounts too, for which we are grateful. We also welcome suggestions for dealing with the situation against novel coronavirus. The government considers such suggestions and also executes the ones found to be suitable,” said the CM.
