Prakasam Superintendent of Police Siddharth Kaushal has warned people not to venture out of their homes as the curfew was imposed between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. to prevent the coronavirus infection from spreading.
As part of the night curfew, the ASP and police officers toured the city on a two-wheeler and asked people to stay inside. The SP warned that the violations would be booked under the Disaster Management Act of 2005 and also under the relevant sections of the IPC.
Up to 701 cases have been recorded against those who moved irresponsibly without a mask and were fined £ 85,260.
“All offices, institutions, shops, restaurants etc. must close their shutters during the curfew. Hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, pharmacies, and other emergency services, including print and electronic media, telecommunications, Internet services, broadcast and cable services, IT and IT-related services, petroleum and gas outlets, and food delivery services, are exempt from the restrictions. “Mr. Kaushal.
Central government employees, employees working in city and local facilities, and emergency medical services, including doctors, nurses, and paramedics, can perform their duties upon presentation of their ID card or ID card.
Patients can travel to hospitals during curfew after returning to airports, train stations and bus stops on presentation of valid tickets. The transport of essential and non-essential goods is also permitted, added the SP.
