In order to check the spread of COVID-19 cases, Chief Minister Vijay Rupani on Friday held a video conference and instructed the office bearers of 162 municipalities to check influx of infected people into their jurisdiction, especially from any neighbouring municipal corporation areas.

The CM also asked the municipalities to take strict actions against those not wearing masks, spitting in public and mishandling of waste material.
