Earlier on Wednesday, with the number of coronavirus cases in Pune nearing 200, wearing a face mask has been made mandatory in public places. Masks are necessary for preventing the spread of the virus, said district collector Naval Kishore Ram. Joint Commissioner of Police Ravindra Shisve said action will be taken under the Epidemic Diseases Act if a person is seen on the streets without a mask.
In a significant development, India's first mobile sanitisation unit has been deployed in Pune to address the hygiene and safety of the frontline warriors such as health care professionals, police personnel and other essential service providers who face the risk of contracting the deadly Coronavirus.
