Chandigarh, August 7

Concerned over the rising number of Covid-19 cases in the state, Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today ordered extended night curfew from 9 pm to 5 am in Ludhiana, Jalandhar and Patiala from Saturday.

He also directed big cities/towns to prepare integrated management plan for the treatment of patients at both government and private facilities.

Can't be complacent

Given the recent increase in cases in districts like Bathinda, Barnala and Ferozepur, we can't afford to be complacent. Capt Amarinder Singh, CM

The CM announced a weeklong trial of enforcement of the mask wearing rule by making the offenders stand at the spot for an hour with a mask on. He said making the offenders sweat it out might help check the violations.

Answering questions in his weekly #AskCaptain live session on Facebook, Capt Amarinder appealed to the people to get themselves tested early and start treatment preferably in a government hospital, urging them not to rush to private tertiary care facility directly as "good treatment is available in government hospitals".
