Unlock 3.0: Night curfew lifted, no cinema, swimming, and bar. Know more here


India’s federal government on Wednesday released guidelines for Unlock 3.0, ushers the nation’s efforts to bounce back to normalcy after months-long hiatus.

The new guidelines will enable gymnasiums and yoga centers to open following Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and night curfew is to be lifted across the nation. The guidelines will be effective from August 1st.

However, Unlock 3.0 will continue to keep schools, coaching institutions, and colleges closed till August 31st. The decision has been arrived on, after extensive discussion with all the states and Union Territories, the MHA statement says.

A number of Indian states in recent weeks have been under record surge of the virus. India’s coronavirus case has been found to be the fastest-growing in the world.

Facilities that will continue to be forbidden for general public use are bars, swimming pools, cinema halls, and metro service among others. International air travel will also be barred.

Social, sports, religious, political, and similar congregations will continue to remain suspended. The Ministry of Home Affairs has mandated the respective governments to re-start the prohibited activities separately following protocols.

In the light of the forthcoming Independence Day, people will be allowed to celebrate but withstanding strict social distancing protocols.

On Wednesday, India’s coronavirus tally cross the 1.5 million mark, having recorded  48,512 cases and 768 deaths were reported in the last 24 hours, Indian Express reports. India’s total death rate touched 34,193.

The nation went into full lockdown from March 25th to spread the virus and has since then re-opened in a phased manner. The novel coronavirus has swept over earth, infecting more than 16 million globally, taking more than 600,000 lives, per Johns Hopkins university tally.
