On the lines of Delhi, Chandigarh administration is also preparing to increase the fine from Rs 500 to Rs 2000 for not wearing a mask. Manoj Parida, the administrator’s advisor, has indicated that Rock Garden, the city’s major tourist destination, may be closed again, as people are not following Kovid’s guidelines inside the garden.

The graph of active cases of corona virus in the city is increasing rapidly. On November 2, there were only 593 active corona cases in the city. At that time the infection rate had also come down but due to the negligence of the people, now active cases have doubled. Due to the low number of cases in October, during the festivals, people have flouted the guidelines of Kovid, so cases have started increasing.

Manoj Parida, Advisor to the Administrator says that these days people have become very careless, so some special strictures will have to be taken to prevent the rate of infection in the city. Parida said that the infection is spreading rapidly in Delhi, so a corona check can be made mandatory for people coming from Delhi. The amount of fine has been increased for not wearing a mask in Delhi. If the rate of infection remains the same, it can be done in Chandigarh so that people do not be negligent.

According to sources, if the graph of Corona in the city keeps increasing like this, then some strictness during lockdown can return to the city again. Among these, Aud-Even can be reapplied in some markets. In many states, children and teachers of schools are also coming under the grip of infection. In view of this, the state governments have once again decided to keep the schools closed.

On this issue, Manoj Parida says that most of the schools in the city are studying online. Very few children are reaching schools to study, so at present no decision has been taken on the issue of schools. Significantly, on June 2, the administration made it mandatory for all to apply masks. There was a provision for a fine of Rs 500 for walking without a mask.

Corona became uncontrollable in Chandigarh, had to ask for help from the Center
The corona became uncontrollable in the city in the month of September. In view of the increasing number of cases, the Chandigarh administration also swelled up. Therefore, on September 4, the administration sought the help of a medical expert team from the central government to prevent the corona virus in the city. The administration officials met with the Union Home Ministry through a video conferencing.

Central government officials found that cases of Kovid in the city increased rapidly since August. On this, the administration was requested to give a medical expert team to Chandigarh. A two-day team for 10 days arrived from the center a few days later, which submitted its report to the administration after the survey. According to that report, the administration acted, after which cases of Kovid were reduced in the city.
