Large Gatherings Banned In Mumbai To Curb COVID-19
Mumbai police on Wednesday issued fresh prohibitory orders under section 144 of the CrPC, banning assembly of five or more people at one place in the city, to contain the spread of COVID-19, an official said.
The order will come into effect from 8 pm on Wednesday and remain valid till 7 am on May 1, he said.
This is part of the Maharashtra government's curfew-like restrictions on public movement over the next 15 days across the state. Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, while announcing these restrictions on Tuesday, had said section 144 of CrPC will be in force across the state during the period.
As per the order issued by the Mumbai police, all establishments, public places, activities, services, shall remain closed and nobody will visit public places without a valid reason.
