Mangaluru: Weekend curfew - Marriages, religious rituals to fulfill vows alone allowed

Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Jan 14: The weekend curfew ordered by the government a week back will be in force from the night of Friday January 14 to January 17 morning.

Deputy commissioner Dr K V Rajendra has clarified that only marriages (with 100 people indoors and 200 outdoors), predetermined religious programmes in fulfilment of religious vows like Yakshagana alone will be permitted during this period. No other private or public programmes can be held in the district, he stated.

Schools and colleges will remain closed. Buses will move about depending on passenger response. People will be allowed to travel to far off places by buses, trains and flights. Shops dealing in provisions, milk, and medicines will be open.

As a measure of precaution, all temples, churches and mosques will be off limits for devotees during the weekend curfew period. The priests and limited number of staff can participate in the routine puja rituals, he said. He added that some relaxation had been allowed during the last weekend curfew but this week, no public or private programmes can be organized because of the increasing positivity rate in the district and neighbouring Kasargod.

    No SPECIFIC tests for covid using COMMON COLD virus detecting RTPCR tests, case count increase or decrease ? TOP MOST BLUNDER during 1st Wave Using RTPCR tests, WHICH DETECT not only Covid 19 but also Common Cold viruses. And if it's magnifying factor or CT value kept above 35 detecting Viral fragment, dead virus also positive. Now also it detects past, present, future corona viruses, alpha, beta, delta strain, omicron, other common cold viruses as Covid 19 luckily not as COVID 21 or 22. Using these common viral test communist chinese trying to ruin world economy including India's economy for communist control and take over that our IAS officers or political leaders and health officials fail to understand. Looks like huge elite BigPharma commission involved that make authorities blind. (After bio war if these evil communist chinese and socialist russians start conventional war it is not surprising.)

    All this curfew is all bogus so many restaurants are open not only take away service is provided but also table service is provided. Last weekend I was surprised to see a restaurant open with table service. These police and MCC officials targeting only gullible people.
