Face mask mandatory in four Haryana districts: Vij

Chandigarh, April 18 : Haryana Health and Family Welfare Minister Anil Vij said that in view of the increasing Covid cases, face masks have been made mandatory in Gurugram, Faridabad, Sonipat and Jhajjar districts of Haryana adjoining NCR and those who will not wear face mask will be fined. Interacting with media persons here on Monday, Vij said that out of 238 Corona cases, 198 are from Gurugram and about 22 cases are from Faridabad, rest more than half of the districts in Haryana have reported zero cases of corona. He said that the team was sent by him to Gurugram to study why the Corona cases are increasing in Gurugram and the report of this study is yet to come. But at present, as a precaution, it has been made mandatory to apply face masks in Gurugram, Faridabad, Sonipat and Jhajjar districts adjacent to Delhi. He told that samples have been sent to Rohtak to know the variant of Corona, according to which further preparations will be made. “We are fully prepared, our staff is ready, our equipment, beds and oxygen are adequate, but people should be alert this time.” Similarly, in response to a question regarding violations in medicines and food items, Vij said that FDA is fully alert and is consistently taking stringent actions against the violators. Responding to another question regarding SYL, he said that SYL is our right, a new government has been formed in Punjab, as soon as it is formed, and they demanded Chandigarh. They should know that the issue of Chandigarh is directly connected with SYL. He added that if they want to take Chandigarh, then start constructing SYL, if they transfer Hindi speaking areas to Haryana, then everyone will be saved from going to court. In response to a question regarding the announcement of 300 ts of free electricity in Punjab, he said that whoever country has followed the freebie policy has not survived and become hollow. The recent example of this is Sri Lanka. DB GK
