Curfew ordered in West Godavari district, Bhimavaram under complete lockdown

In the view of the sudden spike in the number of COVID-19 cases, several district administrations decided to impose lockdown on Sunday.

The state has so far not announced a complete shutdown after Unlock 1 began in June. But the number of cases in the past three days has become a cause of concern as Andhra Pradesh has now surpassed Delhi in the number of total cases.
Only medical stores and medical services will remain open in Anantapur today. As Section 144 has been imposed in the district, action will be taken against people in groups moving anywhere across the district.
West Godavari too announced a curfew on Sunday with police personnel appealing to local people to stay at home to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
