Lockdown was relaxed under ‘Mission Begin Again’. Concession was given to start daily work on the condition that all the rules should be followed as per the guidelines of the government. Citizens were appealed from time to time by the administration. However, the rapid increase in the number of patients and the rising number of deaths have shown that the citizens are not following the rules. Therefore, direct action should be taken against the violators under the Infectious Diseases Control Act with immediate effect, said Municipal Commissioner Tukaram Mundhe.
Many cities were locked down due to the growing number of patients. However, a joint meeting of Assistant Commissioners of all the ten zones of Nagpur and Additional Commissioners of Police Administration was held at the Municipal Commissioner’s Office on Friday (17th) on the issue of strict implementation of rules so that there is no need for lockdown in Nagpur.

Before the launch of ‘Mission Begin Again’, there were about 400 covid patients in Nagpur. However, by July 16, she had gone to 2100’s house. That is an increase of 1700 patients in a month and a half. This means that despite repeated appeals to citizens to abide by the rules, it is not being done. Despite the warning to traders in the market, social discrimination is not followed. The mask is not used. The rules laid down for shops are also being violated.
