Mumbai police department is issuing new restrictions for traveling inside the city.
The decision is based upon the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Mumbai and the low level of respecting the previous restrictions.
The order bans any movement in the most infected parts of the city, except for necessary food and medicine shopping.
In the coronavirus hotspots of the city, people won’t be allowed to go out anywhere out of there homes.
However, there are few exceptions to the rule for government offices, essential service providers, and banks.
The new restrictions will go into effect from today and will last at least until the end of September.
Mumbai will be the only city of Maharashtra state under the strict protective measures, although the entire state has lost 30,883 people since the beginning of the pandemic, and 1.1 million are positive to the virus.
“Mumbai city continues to be threatened with the spread of Covid-19. It is considered expedient to issue a prohibitory order restricting any presence or movement of one or more persons in public places or a gathering of any sort anywhere, including religious places,” is only one part of the new order from the Mumbai police department.
