The streets of Goa wore a deserted look after 8 pm on Thursday as the state observed 'Janata Curfew' to curb the spread of coronavirus. The state government has announced Janata Curfew between 8 pm to 6 am till August 10.
Besides, lockdown will be in force on July 17, 18 and 19.
During the Janata Curfew, movement for all non-essential activities has been prohibited.
Ahead of lockdown, people thronged markets across the state to stock essentials.
"People have cooperated very well. There is no one on the streets since 8 pm," said a senior police official, adding violators will be immediately arrested.
Goa's COVID-19 cases have reached 3,108 with daily three-digit spike in cases. The coastal state had been declared as Green Zone in May with active cases dwindling to zero, but later there was a fresh surge in infections.
