Kolkata: People Seen Violating COVID-19 Norms Everyday in Buses

Private buses in Kolkata are witnessing violations of Covid-19 norms everyday. People are seen sitting in close contact and not following social distancing. Some were seen not wearing masks too. While talking to a bus conductor of a private bus, who was also not wearing a mask, he said, "I work from almost 7 AM till 9 PM, how do you expect me to wear this all day especially when the weather is so hot and the bus is filled with passengers". A passenger, who was traveling from Tollygunj to Bhawanipur was asked if she feels scared in such a crowded bus, she said, "We have no other option, we are getting used to this as now even Government buses have the same amount of crowd and not every day we can afford public cars or taxi". As of September 5, West Bengal recorded 1,75,000 Covid-19 cases, with 68,789 cases in Kolkata alone.
