Noida, Ghaziabad get respite as Uttar Pradesh govt lifts corona curfew


New Delhi: Amid a decline in COVID-19 cases, the Uttar Pradesh government on Sunday (June 6, 2021) lifted COVID-imposed curfew from all districts, barring Meerut, Saharanpur and Gorakhpur. 

The announcement was made by ACS Information Navneet Sehgal. He revealed that the COVID-imposed curfew is being lifted from all districts, including Gautam Buddh Nagar and Ghaziabad.

Earlier, the state authorities had issued a directive that stated that COVID-imposed curfew will be lifted in districts with less than 600 active cases. 

“From 1,025 active cases on June 1, it came down to 631 on Saturday. This has brightened the prospect lifting of the curfew in the district.
