Spitting in public is an offence under municipal laws in various cities, but it is hardly taken seriously by the people in the country. The public attitude, the widespread culture of betel and tobacco chewing, and low priority keeps the practice going.
As India battles coronavirus and guarantees the well-being of each resident, the government is making rigid laws to help control the spread of COVID-19. The Union Home Ministry made the act of spitting in public a punishable offence under the strict Disaster Management Act in its guidelines to contain COVID-19.
MoHFW(Ministry of Health & Family Welfare) has published this funny video bit to make the masses aware of the severity of this matter.
