He added that the restaurants in the state cannot survive on takeaways alone and the management was planning to shut down again for a month till the situation normalises.

Fearing the spread of the pandemic, a number of coffee shops in Lucknow have not yet resumed business in shopping malls. Poor customer footfall and the high rentals are also other two reasons for it.

In Uttar Pradesh, most of the hotel and restaurant owners are of opinion that if the pandemic recedes within a month and the safety protocols be eased, then the businsee could flourish.

In the wake of the rising cases, the state government has decided to implement weekend lockdown twice every week to contain coronavirus.

During the weekend lockdowns, all the non-essential services like malls and restaurants will be shut on every Saturday and Sunday. However, only economic activities will be allowed to run as usual.

The development comes as the death toll from COVID-19 in the state reached 1,192 on Monday with a record 46 fatalities in a day, while the infection tally mounted to 51,160 as 1,913 fresh cases were reported.

There are 19,137 active cases in the state, while a total of 30,831 people have been discharged from hospitals so far after recovering from the disease.
