The ongoing lockdown in the union territory of Andaman and Nicobar Islands has been extended by a week, starting tomorrow, Chief Secretary Chetan Sanghi tweeted today.

The decision, the Chief Secretary tweeted, was taken with a view to tackle the rapid rise on the island’s coronavirus cases. During this period, he added, essential supplies will be available and flights and ships will operate in reduced numbers. He also urged everyone to wear masks and maintain distance.



Earlier, on August 2, restrictions for shops and commercial establishments were imposed for a week, starting from the midnight of August 4, till August 11.
