THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday said that the state government has decided to intensify the measures to combat the spread of coronavirus. As a part of this, it has been decided that a data bank will be prepared to keep track of all those who violate the rule by not wearing a mask, the CM said.

The CM said that a fine of Rs 2000 will be slapped on the second time offenders for not wearing masks in public. The government is being forced to come up with stringent actions as many were found not wearing masks and not following physical distancing measures despite an increase in COVID cases across the state, he said. He also added that the containment strategy will be intensified in Thiruvananthapuram, Alappuzha and Malappuram with the help of the police department.
