Raipur: District Administration has reportedly decided to extend lockdown in Raipur by another seven days without any break, according to highly-placed sources in district administration.
This means the lockdown, which was meant to end on April 19th morning, will now be extended up to April 25th morning.
However, considering the essential needs of larger masses, there would be relaxation of 3-4 hours on 19th morning from 6 am till 10 am so that people can restock their necessary supplies and brace for another week-long extended lockdown.
The decision of extending lockdown was necessitated in view of a fatal spike in COVID-19 cases and related morbidities in the state, particularly in the state capital where the hospitals are overwhelmed with the terrific inflow of Covid-19 patients.
An official order to this effect is very likely to be issued on April 18th at noon or evening.
Do not panic but stay alert and vigil.
Stay Safe, Stay Home...Wear Masks...Maintain Social Distancing.
Help Administration to fight back pandemic.
