Covid-19 curfew in Maharashtra: Streets seen deserted during week-long lockdown in Amravati

New Delhi: Streets in Maharashtra’s Amravati wore a deserted look, a day after it was placed under a week-long curfew due to the sharp rise in COVID-19 cases in the district.
However, as shops selling essential commodities will be allowed to remain open during the curfew from 8 am to 3 pm, some people ventured out of their homes to re-stock the supplies.
A local resident Pramod Kakur said many people who are not well versed with online shopping have to step out for their day-to-day chores despite curfew in place.

“People who don’t know how to do online shopping will have to step out, no matter what. Also, many people live alone who eat outside. They have to get out of their homes to arrange for their meals,” said Kakur.
Another resident Uma Shanker said if the government does not impose a complete lockdown, people will keep finding reasons to go out of their homes.
“If the government wants people to obey the curfew properly, they should deploy security forces to keep a check on people. If the government keeps the essential shops open, people will keep finding ways to move out of their homes,” said Shanker.
