Ahmedabad will be under night curfew from 9 pm to 6 am beginning tomorrow due to rising number of coronavirus cases.
Shops will remain open from 7 am to 1 pm and beyond 1 pm for essential items.
The municipal administration has announced that this measure will continue in the city until the Covid situation improves in the state.
Post Diwali, the city has seen an increase in corona cases and lack of social distancing added to the problem.
Officer on Special Duty, Rajiv Kumar Gupta, said beds for coronavirus patients are fast filling up in private hospitals with just around 400 of them remaining vacant in the city.
From 125 to 130 daily cases a few months ago, the city is now witnessing over 200 COVID-19 infections.
At present, a total of 2,637 beds for coronavirus patients are available in the city, 2,237 in government-run hospitals and 400 in private COVID-19 designated hospitals, Gupta said.
