Unlock 3.0 has given many relaxations like inter and intrastate traveling, gymnasium, yoga centers are allowed. International flights are still not allowed. In a limited manner, the government has been operating Vande Bharath services. The government has given Standard Operating Procedure, accordingly, the gymnasiums and yoga centers should continue to work. There is not much change in the Unlock 3.0. A few states like Himachal Pradesh slowly initiated the process of opening the gates for tourists, as Himachal Pradesh gets revenue through tourism.
What will happen in Unlock 4.0?
More unlocking may take place. Metro train services were stopped on 22nd March 2020. Those may be resumed. Already road transportation has started with social distancing and other precautions. Rules may remain the same for metro trains also.
Why Metro Trains are important:
Metro trains are reliable commuting for the middle class and poor people. After the pandemic, to resume normal life and earn money, it’s important for the people to have the metro train services.
Opening of schools?
It should not be opened and it may remain closed for some more days because the virus may spread through children. Online classes with some rules have been continuing in a few states and some other states will run the same but no normal classes may be conducted.
What happens if the schools still remain closed?
The children may lose the capacity to learn. The skill of learning is very important and it may become low. However, being safe is more important, so it is better to continue to be safe by avoiding social contact.
Malls and cinema halls:
Malls and cinema halls may remain closed. The reason is the same, that it could be a hotspot for the spread of corona. If the government opens the mall or cinema hall, the occupancy rate could be very less. People have not been showing interest in buying because the purchasing capacity of a common man has come down. So, the malls or cinema halls have to pay rent or electricity bills if they run in this time. Not only the government but also the owner of those halls and malls are not ready to open them.
Swimming is a good exercise, but at this time of virus infection, the government would not prefer to pass its directions to open the swimming pools. Through water, the infection may spread faster than the normal condition.
Bars and restaurants:
Bars and restaurants may not function as a place to consume but can be a place to take away.
Unlock may give a common man a little relaxation and a chance to earn little more money than the previous unlocking but there will be no relaxation until the vaccine is out. Though Indians’ recovery rate is high no parent would allow their children to take steps in vulnerable conditions like schools and malls.
