The Haryana government has imposed a night curfew in the state in view of the rising number of COVID-19 cases being reported daily, with the number of active coronavirus cases doubling in the past 11 days.

Starting April 12, 2021, a night curfew from 9 pm to 5 am will be imposed in Haryana. The curfew will stay in place until further orders.

No person will be allowed to move on foot or by vehicle during this period or roam around in public places during the said hours.

However, the Haryana government has clarified that frontline workers such as policemen, emergency service personnel, military, CAPF personnel in uniform, executive magistrates, etc., will be exempt from following the night curfew (upon producing identity card).

Those associated with the media industry, health sector, electricity or fire department have also been allowed to step out during the night curfew to discharge their duties.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does a vaccine work?

A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic. Herd immunity occurs when a sufficient percentage of a population becomes immune to a disease, making the spread of disease from person to person unlikely. The good news is that SARS-CoV-2 virus has been fairly stable, which increases the viability of a vaccine.

How many types of vaccines are there?

There are broadly four types of vaccine — one, a vaccine based on the whole virus (this could be either inactivated, or an attenuated [weakened] virus vaccine); two, a non-replicating viral vector vaccine that uses a benign virus as vector that carries the antigen of SARS-CoV; three, nucleic-acid vaccines that have genetic material like DNA and RNA of antigens like spike protein given to a person, helping human cells decode genetic material and produce the vaccine; and four, protein subunit vaccine wherein the recombinant proteins of SARS-COV-2 along with an adjuvant (booster) is given as a vaccine.

What does it take to develop a vaccine of this kind?

Vaccine development is a long, complex process. Unlike drugs that are given to people with a diseased, vaccines are given to healthy people and also vulnerable sections such as children, pregnant women and the elderly. So rigorous tests are compulsory. History says that the fastest time it took to develop a vaccine is five years, but it usually takes double or sometimes triple that time.

Pregnant women and people with medical conditions will also be allowed to travel to and from hospitals and medical centres.

Passengers going to or returning from airport or railway stations have also been exempted from abiding by night curfew rules.

Those wishing to travel during the night curfew hours will have to seek permission and obtain a curfew pass.

The Haryana government has not banned the movement of inter-state and intra-state transport and hospitals, chemists, and ATMS will remain open from 9 pm to 5 am.

Haryana is among the 16 states that have registered a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases. On April 11, 16 people died of COVID-19 in Haryana, taking the death toll to 3,268. At the same time, as many as 3,440 fresh coronavirus cases were added, pushing the state’s infection tally to 3,16,881.
