| Monday | 19th April, 2021
The state on Saturday registered another highest single-day surge in terms of daily cases with 67,123 fresh coronavirus disease cases which took its tally to 3,770,707. The death toll in the state inched towards 60,000 as 419 fresh fatalities pushed the toll to 59,970.
Authorities in Mumbai said people carrying out essential services and exempt from curfew rules will have to use color-coded stickers on their vehicles to help them operate with more ease and also to limit vehicular traffic on the roads. Mumbai Police commissioner Hemant Nagrale said on Saturday said that red, green, and yellow stickers were introduced to ensure the strict imposition of the restrictions brought by the Maharashtra government to curb the rising coronavirus disease (Covid-19) cases.
Nagrale highlighted that the color-coding of the vehicles will discourage people from getting out unnecessarily. The stickers, which should be in the form of six-inch circles, will be available at ‘nakabandi points’ and all toll nakas and will also be provided free of charge by the Mumbai Police.
Vehicles used by doctors, medical staff, ambulances, and medical equipment suppliers will sport a red sticker. Vehicles involved in transporting food, vegetables, fruits, groceries, and dairy products will have stickers in green.
Officials of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), people involved in essential services, electricity personnel, members of the media, and telecom department personnel will have to use an orange sticker.
“If you fall under any of these categories, then please fix the sticker on your vehicle,” Nagrale said in a video message. The city police commissioner also warned against the misuse of these stickers and said it will lead to strict prosecution.
