Police collect ₹26 cr.in COVID-19 fines

COVID-19 CM holds meeting with market associations of Delhi

The Deputy Governor of Delhi has made some changes in the rules of Covid-19 Epidemic Management Control 2020 in the national capital.

In his direction, Shah had said ICMR and the Delhi government must work together to enhance the RT-PCR testing capacity to 60,000 tests by end November.

Accessing the increase in cases in the national capital, the AAP party MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj said that he will increase the number of RTPCR tests from around 18000 to 27000.

Meanwhile, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain announced that government rates would apply to the normal, non-ICU beds reserved in private hospitals by the Delhi government for COVID-19 patients.

On Wednesday, the infection tally in Delhi rose to over 5 lakh with 7,486 fresh cases being reported, while 131 new fatalities - the highest single-day death count till date - took the toll to 7,943.


The reply was in response to a lawyer's plea who had challenged the imposition of a fine of Rs 500 for not wearing a mask when he was travelling in his vehicle, alone.

There is no harm in wearing a face mask inside a auto, the minister said, appealing to the people of the city to ensure that they don't step outside without wearing one.

"Apart from fining people, we also register an FIR in case there is a violation of social distancing rules because of any protest march or a gathering of people larger than the permitted number", he said.

"We have not received any written notification in this regard yet and so we have continued to issue challan of Rs 500 for those found not wearing masks", India TV quoted a senior police officer as saying. Face masks play an important role in containing its spread. Citizens should make it a rule to wear a mask every time they step outside their homes.

Delhi state government on Friday issued a notification on Friday that hiked the fine amount for not wearing a mask in public places. Of the total, 4,68,143 patients have recovered and 8,159 have lost their lives due to the virus.
