A post claiming that the government may institute a lockdown again from May 3 to May 20, the government has now removed the confusion in people’s minds about it. The government said this post was completely fake and no such announcement was made.
“In a post widely circulated on social media, the central government is alleged to have declared a total lockdown in the country from May 3 to May 20. #PIBFactCheck claimed that the central government had not made such an announcement.”
Earlier on Thursday, the Federal Ministry of the Interior informed union states and territories that there would be no lockdown and advised them to adopt “precaution” measures in the counties and regions with high cases.
