New Delhi: The coronavirus pandemic has once again gone out of control as the second wave has hit the country in a more disastrous manner and the records are being broken in regard to the fresh positive cases which are getting registered. The only relief is that the vaccination drive is also going on in full swing but what is making the government worried is the fact that the citizens are not following the safety guidelines in a proper manner.
Four petitions were filed for demanding a decision of the Delhi government, as per which a person needs to wear mask even if he/she is travelling alone in the car. Justice Pratibha M Singh dismissed all the petitions stating that mask is a 'suraksha kavach' and even if a person is sitting alone in a car, he should wear mask as a car is moving inside the city and going places which makes a moving car a public space.
While we all know that wearing mask is an absolute necessity in today’s situation, still many people are not wearing mask while some people are also spotted putting their mask below nose or mouth. Meanwhile, the Delhi government’s decision to make masks mandatory for those travelling alone in cars, has triggered the Twitterati to make memes online.
