New Delhi: Delhi high court on Wednesday announced that wearing of the face masks while driving single in personal vehicle is also compulsory during Covid-19.
Praising the mask as a 'suraksha kavach', the high court terminated the requests questioning the charging of challan for not wearing a face mask while driving alone in a personal vehicle at the time of Covid-19 epidemic.
Delhi high court verdict comes a day later when India revealed a record daily hike of 1.15 lakh new contaminations in a duration of 24 hours, resulting in the nationwide Covid-19 tally to 1,28,01,785 on Wednesday.
The single-day growth in coronavirus cases has ruptured the 1-lakh limit once again in just three days.
