Beaches, tourist hotspots deserted during pandemic
May 25 2020 01:13 AM

Beaches, parks, other open areas and touristic destinations that usually see huge crowds on the first day of Eid al-Fitr wore a deserted look yesterday as they remained closed and people stayed at home in line with the precautionary and preventive measures taken by the state to curb the spread of Covid-19. Roads were also emptier than what one normally sees during Eid. On its part, the Ministry of Municipality and Environment reiterated through a tweet: “In line with the implementation of precautionary measures in the country, all parks and beaches remain closed until further notice. Celebrate the festival at home with your loved ones and stay safe.” PICTURES: Jayan Orma, Shaji Kayamkulam and Shemeer Rasheed
