More than 1,000 violations of COVID19 preventive guidelines and SOPs have been reported in the last five days in Srinagar since restrictions on public activities were lifted.
A statement said half of these include violations of mask guidelines while the remaining half includes those of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and advice for shops and public transport.
During the last four days since August 18, a fine of around Rs two lakh was imposed on some 800 violators. It is notable that strict action has been ordered against violations of COVID19 preventive guidelines in Srinagar.
This scenario surrounding violations of COVID19 preventive guidelines remains rather same as before despite sharp spike in positive cases reported during the month-long unlock period prior to re-imposition of restrictions on August 1.
It is notable that during the past two months a fine of over Rs seven lakh was imposed on several thousand violators in the district. Most of it was imposed on violators of face mask guidelines.
