“Given the current state of coronavirus infection, all previous restrictions have been extended from midnight on June 18 to midnight on July 15,” the circular said. It also said that all government, semi-government, autonomous and private offices, banks and financial institutions would remain open in compliance with the hygiene rules.

The government imposed a seven-day ban on public transport from April 5 to prevent the second wave of coronavirus infection. That restriction was later extended by two more days. As the infection situation could not be brought under control, a ‘severe lockdown’ was given from 14 to April 21. After that, the government has extended it for a few terms. This restriction was further developed in its continuation.
