Uttar Pradesh has one of the highest vaccine hesitancy rates in India. 

As per the reports of a notable online news platform, Uttar Pradesh has partially vaccinated (i.e. at least one shot has been delivered) only 4.40 per cent of its population, as opposed to the national percentage of 9.24 per cent.

Although there has been no official order from the government, and nor the DM’s office, this move is actually being lauded for the ingenuity of the move.

The Uttar Pradesh Government announced that from June 1, COVID curfew and restrictions will be relaxed in a phased manner, starting with districts that have less than 600 open cases of people suffering from the disease.

Shops and markets in districts with less than 600 active cases will be allowed to operate from 7 AM to 7 PM.  

Meanwhile, people on Twitter had quite a few interesting things to say about this development:
