The Centre on May 1 extended the nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19 by two more weeks. The move comes just two days ahead of the end of the second lockdown. The lockdown will now remain in place till May 17.
This time, however, the Ministry of Home Affairs has granted several relaxations and issued a set of guidelines to regulate economic activity in the three different zones -- namely green, orange, and red – based on the number of COVID-19 cases reported from these areas in the past few weeks.
The MHA has allowed the operation of taxis and cab aggregators, although only one passenger will be allowed at a time. Meanwhile, the inter-district movement of vehicles will be allowed only for "permitted activities". In all four-wheelers, two passengers apart from the driver will be allowed from now on and pillions will be allowed on two-wheelers.
