Kolkata:

The West Bengal government today announced that the state will go under a complete lockdown for two weeks starting tomorrow. Looking to curb the spread of COVID-19 infections, all offices and educational institutions will be shut down. Even transport services, including Kolkata Metro, will come to a halt, the government has said.

Only emergency services will be allowed, the state’s notification says, adding that groceries and shops selling essential items will stay open between 7 am to 10 am.

Interestingly, sweetmeat vendors will be allowed to function between 10 am and 5 pm. Similarly, petrol pumps will stay open and so will banks, although only between 10 am to 2 pm. 

While industries will be closed, tea gardens will be allowed to function but only at 50 per cent strength.
