There will now be a complete lockdown of 2 days every week in entire Bengal including Siliguri, Corona cases in Siliguri are setting new records every day. Lockdown is currently going on here. It is being feared that the lockdown in Siliguri may be extended further. Meanwhile, according to the news being run on the West Bengal State Home Secretary Mr. Bandhopadhyay and various news channels, from now on, there will be a lockdown of 2 days every week in entire Bengal. This week there will be complete lockdown on Thursday and Saturday. The lockdown will continue as per the order of administration in the Containment Zone.
According to Secretary of State for Home A. Bandopadhyay, community infection of coronavirus is being seen in some areas in the state. This is a matter of concern for the state and the health department. Nobody had imagined that Coronavirus would jump to such a height in West Bengal. A new record is being made here every day. However, people recovering from the epidemic are also coming out in large numbers. But the virus is spreading here as fast.
The state government is compelled that the lockdown cannot be continued for a long time. Perhaps this is why the government wants a complete lockdown of 2 days every week. It may be known that the Uttar Pradesh government is also putting a total lockdown of 2 days every week. It is also good. Because it will work 5 days a week and rest for 2 days. The people of the state will definitely be happy with this decision of the government. Also, success can be found in breaking the coronavirus chain.
According to the news received from Sikkim, the government there is also going to put a complete lockdown in the state. It will be effective from July 21 to July 27.
