Curfew extended to June 10 in AP

As part of its efforts to further reduce the number of COVID cases, the state government extended the curfew to 10.

People can go out shopping and other daily chores between 6 a.m. and 12 p.m., and it is recommended that you continue to wear face masks, keep your distance, and sanitize your hands regularly.

Prohibited orders under Section 144 of the Indian Criminal Code remain in place around the clock.

The decision to extend the curfew was made at a COVID containment review meeting chaired by Prime Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, attended by Chief Secretary Aditya Nath Das and other senior officials.

The government imposed a curfew after the outbreak of the second wave of COVID from May 5-18. It was extended to May 31, and now to June 10, as the COVID fear persisted, although the number of new cases had steadily declined over the past week.
