Ludhiana, April 11

To ensure that city residents wear masks while going out from their homes, the Ludhiana police started making announcements on roads and in streets.

PCR vehicles and police personnel have been told by the Police Commissioner to make announcements and tell people to wear masks.

“Whenever any resident comes out of his home and goes to work, whether on a motorcycle, car or public transport, he/she should wear the mask. If they are going to market or any other place, they must ensure that they should be wearing mask. It can save people from the virus,” a PCR policeman announced.

When the police shared this information on their official Facebook page, residents posted their comments.

Naval Kishore Kaura stated: “What about beggars roaming without masks. They touch hundreds of people and their vehicles. They are the biggest carriers of the virus.”

Amit Batta stated: “Kindly impose two days’ complete lockdown in Ludhiana to break the virus chain. Just to stop community spread. Otherwise, it’s impossible to stop the spread of Covid.”

Aman Sharma wrote: “Its our responsibility to cooperate with the police. They are requesting us for our safety, the police should also take strict action against people found without mask.”

Randeep Singh stated: “Who cares your order in the city. Even some policemen don’t wear mask in police stations and public places. People don’t wear mask in places like vegetable market and gyms. The police should take strict action against violators.”
