The UP government made it compulsory for people to wear masks in public places like Lucknow and 6 NCR districts from today onwards, as COVID cases are arising at an alarming level in the country.
In the last 24 hours, 65 new court cases have been registered in Gautam Buddha Nagar, 20 in Ghaziabad and 10 in Lucknow. According to an official spokesperson, the chief minister has also ordered “close monitoring” of the situation.
Earlier this month, the government made some relaxations with decrease in court cases, but due to the drastic surge in COVID numbers, the government made it mandatory to wear a mask again.
“Precaution is better than cure.” So, it’s better to stop it here and now, before it’s too late.
