With the proliferating number of Covid-19 cases nationwide, stronger measures are being taken by national leaders. Earlier this week, the government of Arunachal Pradesh issued a notice stating that all petrol depots and gas agencies have to refuse service to customers who are not wearing masks. Whereas in Mumbai, one of the epicenters of the pandemic in India, an order was issued (under the Epidemic Diseases Act of 1897) stating that anyone not wearing a mask in a public place will be punished.
