Kohima, June 17 (EMN): Government of Nagaland has imposed a total ban on the movement of people and vehicles from 4 pm to 5 am every day from June 19 till the 30th.

It came a day after the High Powered Committee (HPC) announced the extension of lockdown till June 30.

Chief Secretary J Alam issued an order stating that the total ban on movement of people and vehicles would be in force across the state except for reasons and purposes other than those permitted to move as per the existing lock down measures.

“The District Task Force (DTF) based on local conditions may take additional stricter measures in their respective districts or areas, if in its opinion such measures are urgently required for containing the spread of Covid-19,” it stated.

It may be mentioned that the HPC had extended the lockdown across the state till the end of this month, reasoning that such the measure is required as positivity rate in the state has not declined below 5% and vaccination is yet to cover 50% of the population.
