Relaxation of lockdown rules in Indore, but situation is under control
While Indore reported 441 new cases just yesterday, there have been quite a few relaxations to the stringent rules put up during the lockdown. Right now, Indore is following a 5 day week schedule. This means that shops and other places of interest are only being kept open for the first five days of the week. As for malls, and similar places of interest, they are allowed to open on Sundays, despite the five day week.
In the city, several schools have also reopened after being shut for a long period of time. However, the full strength is not being called in, for obvious precautionary methods.
Additionally, in Indore, all precautions are being observed so as to ensure reduction of spread of the virus. In an effort to inform people about the situation of hospitals, there was a proposal to set up a control room as well. The Control Room will have latest information about the availability of hospital beds.
