The Government has extended the lockdown until May 18.
The cabinet meeting held at Baluwatar this afternoon has decided to continue with the lockdown, following the reference by the high-level committee on Tuesday.
Many vehicles carrying people with their destination in the capital have been returned back with administration turning more strict over the prevention and control measures against Covid-19 in the country.
The decision comes prior to the earlier imposed lockdown period expiring on Thursday.
