 - Sakshi Post

As the situation for the past couple of months was very concerning in India, many states opted for a lockdown. There was at least a month’s or 20 days lockdown in place. These states saw a dip in Covid19 cases and decided to lift the restrictions slowly.

The state governments have announced that ceratin restrictions will be lifted as of Wednesday. Complete leisure might lead to an increase in cases once again, so the state governments are being careful about this and going slowly.

After crossing the 2 to 3 lakh mark in the daily cases, India finally started seeing a fall. The cases slowly went down and were less than 2 lakh on certain days in May and now it has gone down 1 lakh. On Tuesday, the country reported a total of 60,471 new Covid19 cases. This is the lowest number in almost two and a half months. According to the data by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), India now stands at 29,570,881 total cases and 377,031 casualties.

Here are all the Indian states that have relaxed the restrictions:

Bihar – Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has confirmed that starting from June 16, the restrictions will start to ease. There will be a curfew in place but the timings will be a bit relaxed. The curfew will be from 8 pm to 5 am.
