Following its footsteps, Songadh Nagar Palika in the district on Monday announced a voluntary 10-day lockdown from 2 pm from Tuesday onwards.

It is 2 pm on Monday but shops, even vegetable vendors on the sidewalks, in the markets of Vyara Nagar Palika area in Tapi district have already called it a day. Barring a few local residents out for a stroll, the streets look empty — a complete contrast to the daily hustle-bustle in these parts.

“A decision to observe a self-imposed lockdown for 10 days, until April 15, has been taken as a precautionary measure after the number of coronavirus cases shot up here. We have urged people to purchase goods of daily use in the morning. While no restriction or penalty will be imposed for a violation, it is our ardent appeal to people and businessmen to stay at home in view of the larger good of the society,” Rana told The Indian Express.
