Mumbai: Mayor Warns Of Another Lockdown If Citizens Continue To Flout Norms
Another Lockdown Likely If Citizens Continue To Flout Norms says Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar
Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar has warned citizens of Mumbai that there are chances of COVID-19 Lockdown being imposed in the city once again. She added that if people continue to flout basic coronavirus rules a lockdown will be imposed to curb the rising cases.
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Mayor Kishori Pednekar said: “It’s a matter of concern. Most people travelling in trains don’t wear masks. People must take precautions else we’d head towards another lockdown. Whether lockdown will be implemented again, is in the hands of people.”
She added, “An increase in the number of cases is witnessed in the city and if in this scenario citizens don’t take precautions, we will have to go towards lockdown. There is no other option if citizens do not take precautions. Hence, face masks, sanitising and social distancing are things we should continue to follow. Citizens have to take precautions and even almost a year after the Covid-19 outbreak, I see many not taking precautions. It is because of this carelessness that we might have a scenario where the state government might consider another lockdown for the city.”
