No Lockdown In Hyderabad:- Telangana Chief Minister KCR is meeting the health officials, his cabinet of ministers and legislators to discuss imposing one more strict lockdown in the limits of Greater Hyderabad in the wake of an increasing number of cases from the past two weeks. There are strong rumors that the announcement would be out on July 2nd and strict lockdown will be imposed from July 3rd. Several people who are from Andhra Pradesh and are residing in Hyderabad rushed to their hometowns and the Hyderabad-Vijayawada highway witnessed huge traffic from the last couple of days.

KCR is now hesitant of imposing the lockdown as life in the city is returning to normal just now. Most of them supported imposing lockdown in the containment zones where the cases are increasing. If there are strict guidelines imposed in these containment zones, things would return back to normal suggested the Telangana cabinet. KCR decided to go with their suggestions and Hyderabad will not get one more lockdown anytime in the coming future. Over 900 cases are registered in the limits of GHMC on a regular basis. 998 cases are registered on Thursday. Most of the cases are coming from a set of regions and Telangana government is now focused on these regions.
Telangana health officials suggested home isolation for those who are not showing symptoms. The hospitals are full and the private hospitals are charging huge for the treatment. Even the government was targeted for conducting less number of tests when compared to the other states. The High Court of Telangana asked the government to come up with a detailed report in this month and asked to conduct more tests. KCR had a detailed discussion with his cabinet and officials about the same yesterday. As of now, Hyderabad will have no restrictions except in the containment zones.
