Night Curfew imposed in urban areas of entire Odisha from tomorrow

In Odisha, all urban areas will be under night curfew from tomorrow. While the ten border districts will face night curfew from 6 in the evening to 5 in the morning, urban centres of the rest twenty districts will have curfew from 9 pm to 5 am. The increasing number of COVID-19 cases in the state has necessitated the government to extend the night curfew to all the Municipal and NAC areas of the state besides imposing weekend shut downs in the ten border districts. AIR correspondent reports that in a series of steps to upend the viral growth in the state that has reported about 3,000 positive cases in the last 24 hours only, the state government has put a ban on all sorts of congregations across the state. Besides, people entering Odisha will now have to produce RT PCR negative report obtained within 72 hours of entry or a final dose vaccination certificate to avoid 7 days’ home or institutional isolation.

Collectors have been asked to increase the number of rapid response teams to monitor home isolation cases in their respective districts and to involve the Panchayati Raj Institutions to contain the virus in rural areas. Meanwhile, the state administered a little over 154000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines to the eligible beneficiaries amid a significant surge in its active caseload that now stands at 14621.
