He said people should strictly follow lockdown imposed in 36 districts of the state. "I appeal to people to stay at home for all of us. Emergency and essential services will be available to them," he added.

Meanwhile, the total number of positive coronavirus cases in the country has reached 482, according to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
