Mask Becomes Mandatory in Delhi Again
Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in Delhi, the authorities have decided to make the usage of facemasks mandatory in the city again.
The Covid-19 cases in Delhi, as well as in the entire country, are on the increase again. After the third wave of the pandemic ended months ago, Delhi is now again witnessing another dangerous hike in the coronavirus cases, causing serious concerns and fears of a possible fourth Covid-19 wave. Due to the rise in Covid-19 cases in Delhi, the authorities in the national capital have decided to make the usage of facemasks mandatory in the city again. This decision comes just as Delhi has recorded over 2,100 fresh cases of the coronavirus over the last 24 hours on 10th August. After seeing a hike in the number of cases, the Delhi government passed the order the next day on 11th August. According to the notice issued by the Additional District Magistrate office of South Delhi, wearing masks in all public areas is now mandatory, and a fine of Rs 500 will be imposed on those who are seen without their facemasks in such public areas. It must be noted that though a fine has been imposed for not wearing a mask, this rule is not applicable for persons traveling in private four-wheeler vehicles, which means that no fine will be imposed if you are travelling in your own car.
