Cargo flights will be excluded from such restrictions. The government has decided to take this decision in view of the rising cases of the corona.
Corona cases are constantly on the rise in the country. On Monday, the number of people infected with the disease crossed the 400 mark. So far, 15,296 people have lost their lives in the world. Many countries are looking unsettled ahead of this transition. The government has taken several precautionary measures to prevent infection. Canceling domestic flights is also one of them.
Earlier on Sunday, the PM had called for public curfew. After its success, all states have been locked down. All trains have been canceled. Only essential commodities are allowed to be sold. Even the Supreme Court has arranged for video conferencing to prevent the spread of coronavirus infection.
