Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Corona speaking on the state of the state amid the epidemic.
The 21-day-long lockdown in Haryana has been extended for a week i.e. up to 31 May. Now, where shops of street-mohallas have been allowed to open all day, in the markets, shops will be open from 7 am to 12 noon on an aud-even basis. Shops of even number will be opened on the day of even number (to be divided by two) and shops with odd number will open on the date of odd number (not to be divided by two). However, it has not yet been approved to open a shopping mall.
Actually, lockdown has been going on since 3 May in Haryana. It was extended for a week first on 10 May and then on 17 May. Encouraged by the decline in the rate of corona infection in the three-phase lockdown, the state government has now extended the lockdown till 5 am on May 24. On Sunday, Chief Secretary Vijay Vardhan has issued orders to continue the epidemic alert-protected Haryana till May 31. It has been argued that the cases of corona infection have reduced in the state, but it will take time for the situation to become normal. After increasing the lockdown, Chief Minister Manohar Lal said that there has been a continuous decline in the number of corona patients in the state for the last few days.
Previously active cases were above one lakh, which has now come down to 45 thousand. Earlier the number of new patients coming daily was around 15 thousand, which has now come down to five thousand. Despite this, we are not yet in a position to say that the corona has been completely controlled, so the strictness currently enforced needs to be continued.
