The decision was taken at a review meeting chaired by minister V.S Sunil Kumar.

It has been directed that people should not get out of their homes unnecessarily otherwise strict legal action will be taken against those violating the directions. The police and the health department will jointly conduct inspections to ensure that people are complying with regulations.
