The number of coronavirus cases in Mumbai has been increased over the last few days. Keeping this in mind, Mumbai Police along with the government has decided to impose a curfew to contain the spread of coronavirus. This curfew will be imposed from midnight of July 1 to July 15, between 9 PM and 5 AM, where only emergency services will be allowed.

The information was given through a circular issued by the Mumbai Police Commissionerate. The circular said, "All movements of one or more persons in the areas designated as containment zone by the municipal authorities is prohibited, except for essential goods and medical emergencies."

"All movements of one or more persons in the city is prohibited between 2100 hours and 0500 hours, except for medical emergencies and exempted entities," it added.

Besides this, movement for all the non-essential activities will be restricted from 5 AM to 9 PM, except for those permitted under the  'Mission Begin Again' initiative, which will be allowed only in the neighbourhood areas, within 2km radius.



The state government of Maharashtra under this initiative allowed some relaxation from the lockdown. However, over the last few days, this city has witnessed an increase in the number of coronavirus cases and the police have observed many people across the city, flouting the rules and social distancing norms. Thousands of cars have been seized by the police and officials have also noticed people crowding in many areas across Mumbai. 

As of June 30, Maharashtra had a total of 1,74,761 cases, out of which  77,658 were from Mumbai, 14,645 from Thane, and 7,872 from Navi Mumbai.
