Nagpur Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari and Commissioner Radhakrishnan B, on Thursday, appealed to the citizens to abide COVID-19 norms and co-operate in complying with the restrictions imposed by the administration to break the chain of Coronavirus.
“If one person infected with the virus goes into the crowd, 25 other citizens can get infected as well. It is not right to endanger the health of others and hence, while working in public places, it is mandatory to follow COVID-19 norms and instructions issued by the administration from time to time,” Mayor Dayashankar Tiwari said.
Essential services would stay available. “Stay home and cooperate with the administration,” he added.
“NMC is taking strict steps to contain COVID-19 cases in Nagpur. Corporation’s Nuisance Detection Squad (NDS) is taking action against the violators every day. However, only action cannot contain the virus, it is also essential to follow the rules and prevent the infection,” NMC Commissioner Radhakrishnan B said.
“NMC has appealed that no one should go out of their house on Saturdays and Sundays. Except essential services, no shops, malls, markets, theatres, restaurants, hotels, eateries, government or semi-government offices, private offices, abattoirs of the corporation, shops selling meat in the city would remain shut,” he added.
