The deadly pandemic is yet to slow down in the state as COVID 19 cases have restarted gripping the state after the festival of Diwali. Although reiterated by the government to follow COVID 19 related guidelines, wearing masks and maintaining social distancing, the citizens have failed to take the instructions seriously, and there have been grave infringements by the citizens as well as political leaders in following COVID 19 protocols. This has resulted in a spiral rise in coronavirus cases in the state as hospitals are gradually running out of beds.
Due to the severity of the situation, Ahmedabad COVID 19 officer on duty Dr Rajiv Gupta has declared a strict curfew in the largest city of Gujarat. In a statement, he has said that a curfew is declared in Ahmedabad starting from Friday 6 pm which will last till Monday 6 am. In this time duration, the city will be completely shut down with an exemption for medical stores and milk parlors.
Corona situation was reviewed late night and it has been decided that “complete curfew”shall be imposed from tomorrow night 9:00 pm till Monday morning 6:00 am in city of Ahmedabad. During this period, only shops selling milk and medicines shall be permitted to remain open— Dr Rajiv Kumar Gupta (@drrajivguptaias) November 19, 2020
Under this decision, the Gujarat government has amended the decision of reopening schools and colleges from 23rd November. Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama had earlier said that the government is firm for reopening the educational institutions from the said date. However, the decision has been revised amid the deteriorating situation of COVID 19 in the state.
