Restrictions on the movement and assembly of people in Kashmir to contain the spread of the coronavirus were intensified on Sunday as the union territory recorded its second COVID-19 death, a day after 13 fresh cases were confirmed, officials said.
The restrictions on the movement and assembly of people in Kashmir continued for the 11th consecutive day on Sunday, they said.
The officials said the curbs across the Valley have been tightened to minimise the movement of the people in order to contain the spread of the virus.
The tighter restrictions came in the wake of the death of second COVID-19 patient early Sunday. He was among the 13 people who tested positive for the virus on Saturday, which was the highest in a single day.
Most of the roads in the valley have been sealed off and barriers have been erected at several places by the security forces to check the unwanted movement of the people and to enforce the lockdown for containing the spread of the coronavirus, the officials said.
