The benefits of the lockdown can only be achieved in cooperation with the people, said police

In Hyderabad, police wear helmets shaped like the coronavirus while they are in the lockdown imposed by Covid-19 patrolling the streets.

The move, police said, aims to spread awareness of the deadly virus and the need to take precautions against it.

About 7,000 to 8,000 cases of violations occur daily booked against the lockdown introduced earlier this month.

Hyderabad City Police Commissioner Anjani Kumar said Friday that police had been inspecting the implementation of the lockdown in the western zone of Mahedipatnam at the market control post. During the inspection, police officers wore helmets depicting the virus. “The benefits of the lockdown can only be achieved through people’s cooperation,” said Kumar, adding that 99 percent of the city’s population followed the lockdown guidelines. </ He added, "The lockdown has been going on for the past 15 days for strong reasons, and police are on duty at 180 checkpoints across the city around the clock. There are nearly 7,000 to 8,000 violations of the violations every day registered 6,000 to 7,000 vehicles are confiscated. "

He also appealed to people to cooperate with the police and properly comply with all lockout norms.

A nationwide lockdown with relaxations from 6-10am was given on May 12th of the increasing cases of coronavirus announced. It will be in effect through May 30.

Up to 3,527 new COVID-19 cases have been registered in the past 24 hours, representing an active case load of 37,793 in Telangana, the state health department said on Saturday.
