New Delhi [India], April 10 (ANI): As many as 32 people have been booked for stepping out of their homes without wearing masks in the northwest region of the national capital amid the coronavirus lockdown, Delhi Police said on Friday.

FIRs have been registered against 32 people in the matter.

This comes after the Delhi government, on Wednesday, made it compulsory for people to wear face masks in public places to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

"Wearing of facial masks can reduce the spread of coronavirus substantially. Therefore, it has been decided that facial masks will be compulsory for anyone stepping out of their house. Cloth mask shall be eligible too," Kejriwal said while announcing the decision in a tweet.

Earlier today, Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain informed that the number of COVID-19 cases in the national capital had surged to 720. (ANI)
