Lucknow for the past nine days has been virus free, as no new coronavirus positive case had surfaced in the city since March 20th, when 4 new cases were reported here on the same day. However, after 9 days without any new positive coronavirus case, a new case was reported in the city on Monday.
In an effort to provide safe and sound lodging facilities for doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical workers, UP Government authorities have taken over 4 major luxury hotels in the city. With the help of this, the medical workers constantly in contact with the Coronavirus strain will be kept isolated, so that the virus doesn't spread around.
When it comes to food and Lucknow, biryani is a dish that has to come up. This is a vibrant dish of fluffy rice, succulent meat and heady aromas. A Lakhnavi or Awadhi biryani is truly one of the richest and yet, the most simplest of dishes there are. Unlike the biryanis one would find down South or even in central India, an Awadhi biryani is much less masala heavy and more bent toward the aromas and layered flavours.

The city of Lucknow is known for its affluent history, vibrant heritage and its multifold culture, which has stood the test of times and how. Truly, the nawabs had attached quite a few legacies to the city's abundance but there are monuments built for British officers which haven't received much limelight although they too, deserve all of it. Along similar lines, the Butler Palace is one such monument in Lucknow which has a thick yarn of historical significance tethered along its repute. It was once a bustling locale but now it lies in ruins of the aftermath of time.
In the wake of the looming COVID-19 threat, Lucknow residents have been staying indoors and simultaneously, the streets have been empty and the air, cleaner.

Lucknowites woke up to a windy morning and this sudden change of weather has definitely brought in a pleasant change of mood amidst the prevailing gloom.

Medicines fall under the category of essential commodities and to our relief, there are pharmacies in Lucknow which are providing the residents with door-to-door delivery services. This step is intended towards decreasing the number of people out in the streets and this delivery system will also put a cap on the panic buying situation which has taken over the residents right now.
