Lock down 3.0- what are terms and concessions
All of you were thinking that on May 4, the lock down will open and you will get freedom from it, but it has not happened, because the government has extended the lock down in the country for two more weeks. That is, the country will now have to remain in lock down for 54 days in total. The lock down was applied for 21 days for the first time and then extended for 19 days but after May 3, the lock down will remain in force for the next 14 days in the country.
That is, the government is asking you to spend a few more days in lock down. However, during this period, some concessions will be given in Red, Orange and Green with conditions. We will tell you further about these concessions, but first of all, we should know why the government had to take such a big decision?
The first thing is that the lock down of 6 weeks so far has given India considerable success in the fight against the corona virus, but if the lock down is removed from the whole country simultaneously on 3 May, then the cases of infection increase rapidly.
The second reason is that in the meeting with the Prime Minister on 27 April, the Chief Ministers of most states had appealed to increase the lock down while some states insisted on continuing the lock down with some concession.
The third reason is that the cases of corona in the country are still increasing. In Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh, 2 thousand to 10 thousand cases of corona virus have been reported.
The fourth reason is that the government does not want the corona virus to reach the third stage. In the third stage, the infection spreads among communities. It is called community transmission. For the last about a week, 1500 to 2000 new cases of corona virus are coming every day, so the government has to take a decision to increase the lock down.
The fifth reason is that the removal of the lock down starts the movement of people on a large scale, and many people who are infected reach the states or cities where the situation is under control. Therefore, trains will be run for pilgrims, laborers and tourists, but for the remaining people, rail traffic will still be closed and the ban on air travel will continue.
The government also wants to take care of the health of the people and wants to bring the economy back on track, so different rules have been made for red, orange and green zones. Prime Minister Modi has said that life has to be saved and the mind has to run and this decision has been taken keeping this in mind.
733 districts in the country have been divided into red, orange and green after seeing cases of corona infection. Of these 130 districts are in Red Zone, 284 Districts are in Orange Zone, 319 Districts are in Green Zone. Green Zone means zone – Where no case came in the last 21 days. Red zones are where cases are constantly coming up.
The Red Zone is determined by how many active cases are in these areas, how many cases are doubling here, how much testing is happening here and what is the feedback of the administration teams. Areas that are not in either the Green Zone or the Red Zone are kept in the Orange Zone.
These services will still not open in all three zones
