Hyderabad Turns Deserted Owing to Second Wave of COVID

The city is now wearing a deserted look once again due to the outbreak of corona for the second time. While last time, it was a lockdown imposed by the government, this time around, people are refraining from stepping out due to fear of catching the virus.

Given the situation, the traffic that was a huge menace at main points in the city has become minimal in the past one week. The situation has been the same during weekends. In the past, the city roads would be full during weekends starting Friday evening to Sunday evening. But now, that looks like a thing of the past.

Many business owners and retailers are worried that their businesses have come down to 50 percent. The situation is palpable as the number of cases reported in Telangana was around 5000 and 800 cases were reported in the state capital alone. The busy Madhapur-Jubilee Hills-Nagarjuna Circle Road barely had any traffic this weekend.

Similarly, in the old city, where the roads would have been completely blocked because of Ramzan, there are hardly any shoppers or tourists during the Ramadan season. It was seen that there were literally no people after 6 pm. One commuter shared that it took him 10 minutes to commute between High Court and Abids. 

The situation is the same in Kukatpally which has many gated communities. People are neither entering nor stepping out of them. Begum Bazar’s Kiran Shop owners decided to shut shops by 5 pm due to corona, but not many shopkeepers seem to be interested in the decision as one can see shops open till usual timings.

Health Minister Etela Rajender has requested people to wear masks whenever they step out.
