Karnah, Oct 7: Although public transport activities have resumed but the Covid-19 health advisory is being ignored by the transporters and at the same time the passengers are being charged extra fare.
The government had resumed public transport activities on conditions, including maintaining social distance in passenger vehicles as well as making it mandatory for passengers to wear masks.
However, the transporters are ignoring the Covid-19 guidelines and not following the SOPs. Most of the transporters don’t wear masks and also allow passengers to travel in their vehicles without wearing masks.
As a result, the novel Coronavirus is likely to spread more rapidly.
People have urged the government strictly enforce the Covid-19 guidelines and press the transporters to follow the SOPs in letter and spirit.
“Those violating the SOPs should be taken to task. They should be heavily fined so that others learn a lesson and don’t defy the Covid-19 SOPs,” they said. (CNS)
