Puducherry, Jul 18 (PTI) The administration in Yanam,

an enclave of Puducherry in Andhra Pradesh, on Saturday

announced that restrictions will be tightened on Sundays in

view of the rise in number of COVID-19 cases.

Shivraj Meena, the Regional Administrator of Yanam,

said in a release the stricter curfew would come into force on

Sundays in the region from July 19 in an effort to prevent the

spread of coronavirus.

Yanam is the first region in the whole Union Territory

to announce a stringent curfew reminiscent of total lockdown.

He said only medical emergencies and government and

essential services would be permitted during the curfew period

(6 am on Sunday to 6 am on Monday).

Milk booths would function from 6 am to 8 am and from

6 pm to 8 pm on Sundays.

Any violation would attract action under the Epidemic

Act and Disaster Management Act, the official said.

Health Minister Malladi Krishna Rao had been seeking a

total lockdown in the Union Territory to contain the virus,

but the Chief Minister had taken the stand that "lockdown

alone would not be the panacea to battle the spread of the

infection."

However, Yanam from where Rao has been elected to the

territorial Assembly, has now come out with stricter

restrictions to counter the pandemic on Sundays.PTI Cor SS
