Mizoram: Partial lockdown in Aizawl extended till Sep 4

The Mizoram government stretched the partial lockdown in the Aizawl Municipal Corporation area. Keeping in mind the sensitive situation of India, certain COVID-related restrictions have been made in parts of the state till September 4 with a few relaxations in the curbs.

The extension was announced as the restrictions, imposed on August 15, were scheduled to expire on Saturday. Places of worship have been allowed to reopen in COVID-free localities outside the AMC area. With this, deputy commissioners and village task forces are instructed to make arrangements for the same. However, churches for worship services will continue to remain closed in the AMC area, it said. Circle or area-wise religious conferences or business meetings will be allowed in all parts of the state with a maximum of 200 participants or 50 percent of the sitting capacity of a church where the event will be held. The business meetings should be held only during the daytime and people with symptoms of COVID-19 and any patient suffering from chronic and serious diseases will not be allowed. The new order also permitted sporting activities- indoor games with 10 participants and outdoor events with a maximum of 25 attendees in the AMC area. Gymnasiums will also be allowed to reopen in the state capital with 33 percent of the capacity. 

Meanwhile, 115 more cases of Delta variant of coronavirus have been detected in Mizoram, a health department official said. At least 500 more samples of Covid-19 patients from Aizawl, Lunglei, Champhai, and Serchhip districts will be sent to NIBMG for genome sequencing this month. The death toll rose to 192 as two more persons died due to the infection during the day, a health bulletin said.
