Covid-19: Curbs imposed in Srinagar parts, other Kashmir areas
‘Restrictions Imposed To Stem Virus Spread’
Authorities on Thursday placed restrictions on the movement of people in several areas of Srinagar and Budgam districts as a precautionary measure to prevent the spread of novel Coronavirus disease.
The restrictions were imposed a day after a 67-year-old woman from Khanyar area of Srinagar, who had returned on March 16 from Saudi Arabia after performing Umrah, tested positive for covid-19.
News agency GNS reported that barricades and concertina wires have been erected at many places in downtown Srinagar and on the roads that lead towards the old city.
Reports said that restrictions have been also imposed in several areas of central Kashmir's Budgam district in a bid to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
