Lockdown extends till May 17, but relief in these zones

New Delhi: The lockdown in the country has been extended once again for two weeks. This time CDS VC Rawat announced to increase the lockdown. Rawat said that along with this, all kinds of activities will be allowed in the areas which will be in the Green Zone. The announcement of increasing the lockdown for the third time was announced by CDS General Rawat in place of PM Modi.

There will be some relief in the Green and Orange zones, but no relief will be given in the Red Zone at the moment. Going forward, the government plans that the people will be gradually given relief in this lockdown in a phased manner.

About 130 districts of the country have been kept in the Red Zone by the Central Government. The lockdown will continue in these districts even after May 3, as the central government has already made it clear that the red zone will remain completely locked down until it turns into a green zone. In such a situation, where there are red zones, the government has put a complete ban on anyone going out and anyone coming from outside.

However, the central government has said that special arrangements should be made to transport essential goods to the people in the red zone areas. There are 130 districts in the Red Zone, 284 districts in the Orange Zone and 319 in the Green Zone across the country.

Red Zone: Where more cases come, it is kept in the red zone. The red zone will remain completely locked down and no one is allowed inside or outside.

Orange Zone: Where there have been fewer cases, they are kept in Orange Zone. There are also some discounts to open shops of essential goods.

Green Zone: Where there will not be a single case, you can place it in the Green Zone. There is some relaxation in the green zone. As such, there is some relaxation given by prohibiting those coming from outside.
