In addition to the fact that people are ordered not to leave their homes, they are forbidden to use their own transport. Also, people were forbidden to gather for the sake of mahjong or card games.
For violation of the ban on access to the streets, citizens can be detained for up to ten days.
Despite the order to stay at home, residents were allowed to leave in case of emergency. In addition, every three days the head of the family has the right to go out to buy food and other necessities.
