02 May 2020 Current Events Centre Extends Lockdown for 2 More Weeks; Near-Normalcy in Green Zone

The Centre on Friday, May 1, announced further lockdown in the country. The nationwide lockdown was scheduled to end on May 3, but two days before the end, the lockdown has been extended for another two weeks, till May 17. But this time, some curbs have been eased to reopen the country and restart economic activity including red zones (areas with the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the country). Under the new regulations, the movements of individuals for "non-essential" activities have been prohibited between 7 pm, and 7 am. For senior citizens and children with pre-medical conditions, the lockdown regulations will remain the same. For domestic help and other local workers, they can work during the day; however, further clarification in this regard is yet to come. Private offices with 33% of staff strength are allowed to function even in red zones. The norms "set the framework for states,"  which states can further increase but cannot dilute. "Near normalcy" is allowed in all Green zones, where no fresh cases have been reported for 21 days. The same has been permitted in the Orange zone which has not recorded any new COVID-19 cases in the fortnight. However, the same has been restricted in the Red zone. Buses are allowed at 50% capacity in Green zones and private four-wheelers with a maximum of two passengers allowed in Red zone. Pillion riders are prohibited.
