The same situation is seen at wet markets. Most people only remind each other to disinfect, wear face masks, but keeping the safe distance from others is almost neglected.
In recent times, the authorities have fiercely checked and dealt with business establishments that deliberately ignore the Prime Minister’s order on social distancing. Many people and organizations are still stealthily operating. The authorities warn that with only a few people breaching the order, social distance would be in vain.
