Rajasthan News: Although Omicron sparked panic in Rajasthan, Corona cases have also caused a stir. A new guideline has been issued by the Rajasthan state government.
On Wednesday, the State Council of Ministers reviewed the situation in Covid19. In light of the increasing infection in the country, the Gehlot cabinet took the decision to impose restrictions. The state has now made vaccinations mandatory. The curfew from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. has been given instructions for the effective observance. Both doses are required in cinemas, theatres, and multiplexes.
Malls, shops, and commercial establishments will close at 10 p.m. Festivals, weddings, and ceremonies will be limited to 200 people. The District Collector must grant permission to more than 200 people. There will be a fine of ten thousand rupees if more than five people are found in the group.
However, the New Year’s Curfew relaxes by 2 hours on December 31. The new guideline is effective immediately. By January 31, the Rajasthan state government requires both doses of the vaccine to be received. After that, people who have not been vaccinated will not be allowed in public or crowded places. Medical experts at the meeting recommended either banning the new year celebrations on December 31 or strictly observing proper medical practices. Since vaccination should be strictly enforced, he argues, giving a month’s concession is inappropriate. Some ministers urged the night curfew to be relaxed on December 31.
Ashok Gehlot, the state’s chief minister, tweeted that protecting the livelihoods and lives of the people was a priority. As of now, only minimal restrictions exist. Bus, auto, cab, and educational institutions require both doses of vaccine for all staff, including non-educational staff. Both doses must be submitted for people over 18 years of age to enter cinema halls, theatres, and multiplexes. Cinema halls, theatres, multiplex-auditoria and exhibition halls will be open until 10 pm. Business establishments, malls, and shops will be able to open at 10 pm.
The Rajasthan government reported 97 new Corona cases simultaneously on Tuesday, after 181 days. This has stirred up the health department. In Jaipur, 75 cases have been reported. Accordingly, the state now has 438 active cases. Due to the third wave of Corona, vaccination has been accelerated in Rajasthan.
