Jaipur, April 3 (IANS) In a bid to contain the coronavirus spread, a "maha (mega) curfew" has been enforced in Rajasthan''s Bhilwara from Friday till April 13, District Collector Rajendra Bhatt said.

Speaking to IANS, he said: "A total of 3,000 jawans from police and RAC are patrolling the street to ensure zero mobility in the city. Women police and other young personnel on 50 motorbikes with sirens are patrollin lanes and bylands to make sure no one even in narrowest of streets comes out during this period."

"We delivered essential commodities at every doorstep till Thursday. Still milk booths are open and are supplying at home with the help of administration," he added.
