Social distancing goes for a toss at shops, vends in Jalalndhar

Social distancing goes for a toss at shops, vends in Jalalndhar

Jalandhar, June 2

Now with several restrictions in the lockdown have already got relaxed, people have started coming out in high numbers. At many shops and food joints, and sugarcane juice vends, people were seen violating the social distancing norms.

Inside narrow lanes and on roads people are seen in large numbers. Though they wear masks, they hardly follow physical distancing.

Even when top cops of the district have been saying that social distancing (minimum six-ft distance) have to be maintained during all activities, it seems that people are hardly following the same and the pandemic has not discouraged them from going out and take precautions.

Recently, Senior Medical Officer AS Duggal had also made an appeal to people to not to go easy post relaxations.

“The relaxations doesn’t mean that the risk of the virus has died down. It is still there,” he had said, adding that he was shocked to witness heavy rush outside juice vends and food joints and people were standing close to each other while buying vegetables. People above 65 years of age, persons with co-morbidity, pregnant women and children below the age of 10 years have been advised to stay at home, except for essential needs and health purposes. — TNS
