This directive did not come from the Interior Ministry. It did not come from the state nor the presidency.No night patrol by the police. They would be indoors too and even before the night falls,people are following the directives as ordered.
People have started staying indoors and closing their shops even before the curfew hours. Most schools have holiday. Most commercial drivers are not working.
