“The decision was taken as the number of coronavirus cases are increasing in the town since the past ten days,” Reddy said today at the Municipal Guesthouse.
The total lockdown might continue for seven to 10 days, he added. The MLA also said that a 200-bed hospital will be set up in the town very soon.
Revenue Divisional Officer (RDO) Venkateswarlu, DSP Veera Reddy, and Tehsildar Ramana Naik also participated in the meeting.
According to the Union Health Ministry, there are 38,044 COVID-19 cases in the state.
