Mumbai’s tally of coronavirus cases have surpassed 48,000 cases. But the first day of Unlock 1.0 has already seen bumper-to-bumper traffic on Western Express Highway. While office-going people are left with little choice, surely those flocking to Marine Drive can probably save their “fitness goals” for another day?
“Iff you give someone an inch, they’ll take a mile,” they say. It certainly seems to be the case with Mumbaikars who are taking to the streets of Mumbai as kids to the playground after their final exams. As the Maharashtra government introduced some relaxations from May 31, hundreds were seen on Marine Drive, running and jogging around, blatantly flouting social distancing norms.
Perhaps the elite “townies” of South Mumbai are immune to the coronavirus, who knows?
