To Prevent the Spread of the Coronavirus, AP Government has Issued a Public safety Order that Spitting in Public Places is Banned and anyone doing so will be prosecuted according to the Penal Code.
Further, GVMC will impose a fine of Rs 1,000/- on those who violate the rule in Vizag. In line with the government’s order, the Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation (GVMC) released a press note confirming the same.
GVMC officials stated that the Virus can only be contained by sanitizing public places, as well as people helping by following Personal Hygiene.

The corporation requested the citizens to support them in this effort to curb the disease.
