COVID curfew to continue till 17 May in Lucknow, Kanpur & other UP districts!

Essential services have been barred from these constraints, to mitigate any related public discomfort.

With 26,636 fresh cases on Saturday, the COVID tallies in Uttar Pradesh have shown no respite for the third day in a row. Holding this in regard and to further foster the efforts of tackling the swell of the second wave of infections, the state government has declared the extension of the ongoing lockdown till May 17, 7 AM. Essential services have been barred from these constraints, to mitigate any related public discomfort.

Section 144 to be in effect till June 5

Further, to strictly cap the spread of the contagious virus in the state's capital city, the Lucknow administrative authorities imposed Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC), on Thursday evening. This order will be in effect till June 5 and any group found flouting these directives in the city, will be prosecuted under Section 188 IPC, by the authorities.

The officials have even mentioned that this step was primarily undertaken, holding the forthcoming festivities in view along with the repercussions of the ongoing pandemic. Additionally, people who wish to conduct any event, will have to seek permission from the Lucknow Commissionerate and if granted, COVID norms have to be followed to a T. If found otherwise, the offence will be punishable.

Simultaneously, to reduce crowding and to limit aimless public movements, the Uttar Pradesh cabinet has also issued an e-pass system for the citizens. Through these various steps, the officials are putting their best foot forward to alleviate the COVID transmission rates but associated benefits can only be achieved, if we religiously follow the issued guidelines.
