    Tripura to go for complete lockdown on July 5: CM Biplab Kumar Deb

    In Tripura, the state government has also hiked the penalty for not wearing masks from Rs. 100 to Rs. 200 for the first offence

    Guwahati: The Tripura government has announced a one-day lockdown throughout the state on July 5 in an attempt to break the chain of transmissions of coronavirus disease in the northeastern state.

    Encouraged by the Janata curfew held on March 22, the one day lockdown in the neighbouring state would start from 5 am on Sunday and would end at 5 am the next day, said chief minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Tuesday.

    Through a video circulated on social media, Deb said, “The state government has declared a lockdown in the entire state on July 5 as we are in stage I of Covid-19 outbreak. We need to prepare for stage 2 and 3. So, I request people to stay indoors and make this one-day lockdown a success like the one-day Janata Curfew on March 22 this year.”

    In Tripura, the state government has also hiked the penalty for not wearing masks from Rs. 100 to Rs. 200 for the first offence. For the second offence, a fine of Rs. 400 will apply instead or Rs. 200.

    Till June, over 4,751 people were detained for violating the Covid-19 lockdown since the imposition of restrictions in March.
