Crackdown on shopping malls: Celebrities urge people to follow COVID-19 norms
As the novel coronavirus cases continue to surge across Maharashtra, the local authorities have started a crackdown on shopping malls. The local civic body – Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has said the COVID-19 test report (RT-PCR) is mandatory for people entering shopping malls in the city. The new rule is said to come into effect from March 22.
Celebrities express their concern over the grim scenario and urge people to strictly adhere to COVID-19 guidelines.

Guidelines have to be followed strictly.
I read in the papers about the huge numbers of cases and that is not a good sign. It is a very sad scenario in Mumbai and even in India. The situation shouldn’t go out of control. The guidelines have to be followed strictly.
Strong action needed.
Mumbai is known for fighting all battles. Strong action is necessary against those people who are violating the rules. Health is more important than going to malls for shopping and eating.
Jay Prakash Sharma
The situation is disheartening.
The pandemic situation is very disheartening, unnecessarily going to malls or any crowded place is not needed. And one must wear a mask all the time and carry sanitizer too. Jaan hai toh Jahan hai.
Opt for online shopping.
To see the Mumbai situation is very upsetting, government guidelines must be followed strictly. One should opt for online shopping and shouldn’t go to malls till the situation is under control.
Citizens must behave responsibly.
COVID-19 scenario has created a scare in the city it is not a pleasant situation. As responsible citizens, everyone has to collectively co-operate to fight the situation. Strictness is needed because people are breaking the rules and behaving and living with a carefree attitude.
Going to malls should be avoided.
Mumbai is going through hard times because of the population and crowd. The pandemic is spreading like fire. Precautions have to be followed strictly.
Going to malls for shopping and eating can be avoided till the situation is not under control. Health and life are more important at the moment.
The Scenario is very sensitive.
I have been watching news channels and the condition of Mumbai is going out of control, people are not following the norms and the government is left with no choice but to be strict. The scenario is very sensitive as it is a matter of lives, zindagi bahut khubsurat hai jeene ka salika aana chahiye.
The phrase ‘prevention is better than cure, aptly conveys its importance especially at a time when India is fighting a tough battle against this deadly virus.
Best decision by the government to conduct tests at public places.
As per the current situation of the rapid increase in COVID-19 cases, the government has taken the best decision by implementing such rules and regulations like no entry in shopping malls or at bus stations and railway stations without a COVID-19 test report (RT-PCR), compulsory testing for cooks, etc. We should remember this, only the lockdown has been lifted, the coronavirus is still looming over. People are still falling sick. I see many of them are still roaming without masks, so we should follow the rules and obey government decisions till COVID-19 cases are terminated completely.
