Conducted with the help of the police, the drive also encouraged the people to wear a mask at all times, in public places
The resurgence of coronavirus infection in Mumbai has once again raised concern among health and civic officials alike and amid increasing laxity towards the preventive norms, the Mumbai Mayor lead an awareness drive at the Dadar vegetable market on Tuesday. While masks were distributed to reinstate caution among people, the campaign also urged people to frequently sanitise their hands and maintain social distancing.
Awareness and caution to break the chain of COVID-19
The Mumbai Mayor along with the Ward GN BMC, Additional Municipal Commissioner, a Corporator and a former Corporator conducted an awareness drive in Mumbai in view of the peaking infection graph here. The Municipal team reached the vegetable market at Dadar today and distributed face masks to the people to break the chain of virus transmission.
As people can often be seen flouting the preventive norms and protocols, COVID-19 has found its grip over Mumbai, yet again. The Mayor reportedly stated that people get out of their homes to buy vegetables and that is why the team reached here and gave away masks to raise both, awareness and caution against the pandemic. Conducted with the help of the police, the drive also encouraged the people to wear a mask at all times, in public places. Norms of social distancing and regular sanitation were also highlighted in the drive.
Coming week to decide the fate of Mumbai and another lockdown
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister has scheduled a review meeting today with the BMC Commissioner and officials to assess the rampant rise of COVID-19 here, after days of arrested growth. The situation here is hinting towards a lockdown as on Sunday the Chief Minister informed that the coming 8 days will decide whether or not will there be a lockdown in Maharashtra.
