In view of surge in coronavirus cases, the Haryana government on Sunday extended the week-long lockdown for another week from May 10 to 17 to contain the spread of the Covid-19 in the state.

Home Minister Anil Vij through a tweet, however, refrained to say it lockdown calling it "surakshit Haryana" (safe Haryana). 

"Surakshit Haryana announced from May 10 to 17. Stringent measures will be taken to contain the spread of Coronavirus in Haryana," Vij said.

Sources said with more than 13,000 daily cases and over 150 deaths being reported daily, the strict restrictions would continue to be in place.

The movement of only essential services would be allowed with the people required to get movement passes for any movement within or outside the state.

Last week, the state government had imposed a lockdown in the state from May 3 to May 10 (5 am).
