    Still it causes overcrowding of people and leads to spike in Covid. Essential shops should be opened from 6AM to 6PM. If people are taking the name of essentials to move out all day long, you should restrict the movement of vehicles and ask them to get it from a local store only by walking to it. Maybe vehicles could be allowed a couple of hours only in the morning, but essential shops should be allowed to operate as long as possible.

    These restrictions lead to no where. Keep local shops open between 6 am to 6pm. Stop vehicle movement be it two wheeler or four. Let people walk to the nearest shops for purchases if any. Only this can prevent overcrowding. 6 hrs shopping window for 2 days, is transferred to 4 hrs in 3 days. Are we learning maths in primary schools???
