Tamil Nadu to impose Sunday lockdown

Chief Minister M K Stalin said on Friday that a comprehensive lockdown would be imposed on Sunday, January 23, with the same set of relaxations and limits as last Sunday's lockdown.

The rapid spread of the Omicron variant of the Coronavirus in the state has necessitated strict restrictions, according to an official press release, which urged people to help with the authorities in fighting the pandemic by adhering to the rules.

People travelling from one location to another and arriving on Sunday, however, will be able to reach their destination because auto rickshaws and app-based taxi services will be permitted to operate from bus stops and railway stations, according to the announcement.

Meanwhile, the government has ordered the distribution of dry rations to students who are beneficiaries of the Nutritious Noon Meal Scheme, while all educational institutions have been shuttered as part of the precautionary steps to combat the spread of Coronavirus.

Every 15 days, each primary school student would receive 1.100 kg of rice, 594 grammes of dhal, 40 grammes of pulses, and 11 eggs, while secondary school students would receive 1.650 kg of rice, 890 grammes of dhal, 40 grammes of pulses, and 11 eggs.
