In its bid to strictly implement Covid-19 rules, the Goa government must impose “super” fine for the people for not wearing face masks. Special drives through flying squads must be brought into service against those who are flouting the guidelines of “social distancing” at crowded places even after ending curfew in the state or while exiting curfew. Testing at Goa borders for nearly one year should be continued. Because 80% people will never improve in their lives. And therefore, magisterial action is badly needed, this is an earnest suggestion to government. The amount coming out of fine is not important rather than the lives of the people. The police also should make announcements at busy markets and other places to appeal to all citizens to follow proper guidelines, maintain social distancing, wear proper masks and avoid crowded places. They must warn that those found violating Covid-19 guidelines in the district will be strictly dealt with as per the law. Vendors, fish sellers, fruits vendors, vegetable vendors, and all others who are responsible for crowding the places and violating social distancing guidelines should be penalized. Finally, government’s order is very important. Goan police are doing well, no doubt about that. Maintaining social distance and wearing mask are the vital factors to eradicate the covid-19. Some people are taking for granted about these factors and therefore Corona is likely to spread at any time in the state. Only maintaining social distancing and wearing masks can curb Coronavirus henceforth. Also washing hands, sanitization, cleanliness, are the individual duties. Therefore government mandatorily should enforce strict guidelines.
