The surge in COVID cases alerted in Punjab Government.

No Strain 2 found so far, do not believe in rumors

Punjabis Be Vigil On The Super Spreaders And Stay Away. No one would be tattooed as Super Spreader yet they are easy to recognize. They are the ones who is NOT WEARING MASKS. Since there has been a significant surge in the cases of COVID-19 in Punjab, the onus again falls on people of Punjab to understand that it is VIRUS, not any Political vendetta or any rumor to mislead them. Government has many other things to do other than spreading fake numbers. So, whatever data is coming regarding the rising Covid 19 cases, all are for real.

In last 24 Hours, more than 10 people have succumbed to Coronavirus in Punjab. The District that reportedly high in numbers are SBS Nagar, Amritsar, Patiala where people consider COVID just a hoax and Just do not wear mask. So far the Punjab Government is concerned, No police official in these particular districts was doing any Mask Challan till the time cases started surging and Top officials introduced new strict guidelines. It seems that officials too had taken a seat back.

Be it Patiala, Ropar (SBS Nagar) or Amritsar people here are just not ready to wear masks. They call COVID a hoax and when fall sick then they blame the system for loopholes. While talking about this Raveen Thukral, Media Advisor to CM says that The DGP has been asked to be strict and some sort of PR campaign will too be launched. Moreover, announcements are too made at railway stations, bus stands, and markets.
