The Nashik administration has come up with a unique approach to discourage people from thronging marketplaces in the attempt to curb the increasing spread of Covid-19 which is creating havoc in the state of Maharashtra.
According to ANI, any time residents of Nashik visit a market, they will be required to pay ₹ 5 per person for an hour. Deepak Pandey, the Nashik Superintendent of Police, has released these new restrictions to prevent the region from going into lockdown.
He commented, “We’re using a different approach to contain COVID19 spread in Nashik. We are issuing a ticket of Rs 5 per person to enter market area for an hour. It’s an attempt to save the city from entering lockdown.”
The district of Nashik saw people overcrowding in marketplaces despite meteoric rise n positive Covid-19 cases in the state of Maharashtra, which is almost at the brink of a lockdown. People were seen without face masks and observing safety protocols in a crowded vegetable market in Mumbai’s Dadar.
On Tuesday, according to an official Nashik recorded some 3532 Covid-19 cases along with 23 casualties.
Chief Minister Thackeray has said that Covid-19 cases are on the rise as a result of people not taking guidelines and safety protocols seriously, and that stringent measures such as lockdown should be considered.
Maharashtra minister Nawab Malik commented on Maharashtra’s Covid situation, “We cannot afford a lockdown. We have asked the Chief Minister to consider other options. Due to rising cases, he has directed the administration to prepare for a lockdown but that does not mean that a lockdown is inevitable. If people follow rules, it can be avoided.”
