Of this, 177 new cases have been accounted for from Dimapur alone, 13 from Kohima, three from Longleng, nine from Tuensang, three from Mokochung, and one each from Mon and Peren. On the whole, Nagaland has 874 dynamic cases as of Tuesday.
While schools and universities will stay shut during the 'lockdown', cafés and shopping centers can stay open with exacting adherence to COVID-19 conventions during the time frame, the public authority said. Instructive establishments including professional and preparing organizations, lodgings, would likewise be closed during this period.
All returnees to the state should go through compulsory testing and testing focuses would be reached out at all section focuses, the government added. There would be no limitations on fundamental wares.
