Social distancing is mandatory to prevent COVID-19

In the face of challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, we concluded the 2020 General Elections successfully.
The people voted in it following health guidelines amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and helped the country to maintain the integrity of the democratic process.
After the elections, have a lot of work ahead of us. The post-election period has brought calls for us to work together to contain, prevent and treat the coronavirus infection, as well as to address other challenges, such as working hard to achieve economic recovery during the post-COVID-19 period.
However, there are some crowds celebrating the results of the elections without following the social distancing regulations. This negligence in following the health guidelines released by the Ministry of Health and Sports can threaten the success of our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ministry of Health and Sports has banned the gathering of 30 or more people since 6th August, 2020, except for the events mentioned in the order, in a bid to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus.
This limitation is difficult, but it is necessary to prevent the spread of the coronavirus across our country.
According to the Ministry, anyone violating the order could face fines or other punishments, as set out in the Prevention and Control of Communicable Diseases Law.
Those who violate the restrictions imposed by the health authorities under the Prevention and Control of Communicable Diseases Law can face six month jail term or Ks. 50,000 or both
We would like to remind the people that the Ministry of Health and Sports has warned again yesterday that those who do not follow social distancing rules would face legal punishment.
It is not a normal situation when crowds are celebrating without following mandatory social distancing rules while the country is seeing over 1,000 positive coronavirus cases daily.
The fight against coronavirus stands or falls on whether the people follow the health guidelines. It is the duty of good citizens to follow the directives of the health authorities.
The current situation, with crowds on roads without following social distancing, makes it challenging for enforcement on the ground.
To effectively stop the source of infection, we need to put in place aggressive, adequate and immediate measures.
