However, the condition has been improved in the state, Kejriwal said.
The government has announced various measures to contain the spread of the highly contagious virus.
Officials, according to a leading portal said, "Though the decision to hike the fine from Rs 500 to Rs 2,000 has been announced, it can not be legally enforced unless a proper notification is received from the government".
While the Covid-19 situation in the country seems to improve with fewer cases each day, the national capital continues to report the high daily numbers, with daily deaths hovering just below the 100-mark.
District teams also imposed the previous fine of Rs 500 on those not wearing masks, saying no notification of the Delhi government has been received by them.
As per part of Centre's assurance to help Delhi government in the fight against Covid-19 following Shah's meeting with Kejriwal, Wakankar said 125 ventilators from Bharat Electronics Limited have reached Delhi and 116 oxygenated beds have been added in Central government hospitals and the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. "The whole world is waiting for a vaccine".
The Delhi government cited the Supreme Court's July 2019 ruling in a criminal case pertaining to drunken driving had held that a auto or any other private passenger vehicle "shall be deemed to be a public place in view of the fact that when a private vehicle is passing through a public road, it can not be accepted that the public have no access to it".
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday met the representatives of market associations of Delhi, seeking their cooperation in controlling the rising cases of Novel Coronavirus in the national capital. First priority should be given to corona warriors as they are working hard during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Then those with co-morbidities and vulnerable should get it. If we make such categories, it will be technical in nature rather than political In nature.
As many as 7,546 fresh COVID-19 cases were reported on Thursday, taking the infection tally to over 5.1 lakh while 98 more fatalities pushed the toll to 8,041.
