Night Curfew to be imposed in Lucknow amid the surge in COVID-19 cases

Lucknow has imposed a night curfew, where the educational institutions are imposed to shut down. There is no restriction on the essential services. The night curfew remains constant, whereas the daily needs will go as earlier. This decision is only for Lucknow right now by the Uttar Pradesh government. Several other state governments have taken similar measures to stop the spread of Covid. Covid cases have been increasing past a few weeks from 2 dozen to over 1300 cases per day reported in Lucknow and many other states, including Varanasi, Kanpur, and Prayagraj. Seeing the scenario, the state government has implemented a night curfew from 9 pm to 6 am.
