No permission for weddings till April 30 amid COVID-19 surge, says Indore DM 

The Indore district administration has decided not to give permission for weddings till April 30 amid the unprecedented increase of COVID-19 cases. "No permission will be given for weddings as there's a higher risk of COVID-19 transmission. People are requested to postpone their weddings and stay home till April 30," said Indore District Magistrate Manish Singh.

"This will help us reduce numbers as hospitals' capacity is full now," he added.

He also informed that they have been getting complaints of black marketing of Remdesivir injections.

"Two people who were caught yesterday, have been charged under NSA. Be it hospitals or shopkeepers, anyone involved in black marketing will be booked under NSA," Singh said.
