Mumbai police commissioner Param Bir Singh on Thursday appealed people to patronize neighbourhood shops for essential shopping amid the coronavirus pandemic.

There is night curfew in the city between 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and exception will be made only for medical or emergency services, he tweeted late in the night.

The authorities have already prohibited traveling beyond 2 km from one’s house in the city to check the coronavirus spread.

People should use neighbourhood shops for permitted purchases between 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., the commissioner said.

While traveling for permitted work, people should carry office ID or documents, Singh said.
