Ahmedabad: In Gujarat’s worst-affected city of Ahmedabad, life is slowly coming back to normal as lockdown restrictions are being eased nationwide. Shops and businesses have opened and people can be seen on the roads. Many were also seen flouting precautionary rules by not wearing masks or maintaining social distancing.

The number of patients being brought to hospitals, however, is still on the rise.

ThePrint’s Soniya Agrawal and Swagata Yadavar travelled across the city to capture some of its recent developments.
