9th April, 2020
Corona virus epidemic in the country is not taking a name. Everyday hundreds of people are being hunted. So far, more than five thousand positive cases have been reported in the country, more than one and a half hundred people have died. The central government had a 21-day lockdown across the country, but cases are increasing. At some places, there is a condition that curfew is being imposed in the entire area. Many areas are sealed. On Wednesday, some hotspots in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi were identified and sealed completely. Hearing the news of the hotspot seal, a large number of people came out to the shops. Let's know what is the difference between lockdown and seal?
What happens in lockdown? How is the system
During the lockdown you can go out with the necessary goods with precaution. Fruits, vegetables, ration, milk, medicines are allowed to go out. Emergency services keep going. But there is a legal ban on needlessly leaving homes. Lockdown has been implemented in the country since March 25, despite this, cases are increasing rapidly in this period. The situation in Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi is very poor. In cities like Indore, Bhilwara, despite the lockdown, the cases were not taking the name of stoppage.
No relaxation in ceiling
Even after the lockdown, everything was sealed in areas where corona cases increased. People were completely barred from leaving their homes. There is also no exemption for milk and ration. All shops were closed. Door-to-door screening was introduced. Samples of suspects were taken. The contacts of every positive case will also be identified so that no one is left out. In some cases, these areas were completely isolated from other areas so that the infection does not go out of these areas. The same situation will happen in UP, MP and Delhi districts where orders have been given to seal hotspots. In many districts, the situation became such that the entire district had to be sealed. Bhilwara and Indore are the biggest examples of this.
Sealing: Not the entire district, hotspots will be sealed
Due to Corona virus, when news of sealing of 15 districts of UP was sealed, people ran towards the market in many places and long lines were installed at the shops. But the government has made it clear that only the hotspots, not the entire district, will be sealed. The same situation also exists for Madhya Pradesh and Delhi.
Lockdown likely to proceed
Given the way corona virus cases are increasing, the probability of removal of lockdown is very low. The same thing was revealed in PM Modi's video conferencing meeting on Wednesday that 80 percent of political parties are in favor of continuing the lockdown. Prime Minister Modi himself said that 'the state, district administration and experts have suggested extension of lockdown to prevent the spread of the virus. PM Modi said in the meeting that the situation in the country is similar to 'social emergency'. This requires tough decisions and we must be vigilant. He said that there is a long battle against Coronavirus. Saving the lives of all is the priority of the government. The PM has called a meeting of Chief Ministers on 11 April. In this, the decision on lockdown extension can be done.
