People in the ‘red zones’ have been asked to remain indoors for 14 days. Essentials items will be supplied to doorsteps in these areas.

Localities declared the ‘red zones’, included Chandanagar, Kokapet, Gachibowli, Turkayamjal, Kothapet.

Meanwhile, the city traffic police have imposed traffic restrictions on the Outer Ring Road till the lockdown is recalled. “Cars and medium sizes vehicles will not be allowed on the ORR. Only trucks and heavy motor vehicles can ply on the ORR,” said Cyberabad DCP (Traffic) Vijay Kumar.

The move was necessitated by growing incidents of road mishaps due to speeding after imposition of lockdown.

Telangana has witnessed a spurt in the Covid-19 cases over the last two days. On Friday, the Chief Minister had said 10 new positive cases were detected in a day.

The number of Covid-19 cases in the state stood at 59 on Friday.
