Mumbai Metro resumed its operations on Monday, months after they were halted in the wake of the outbreak of COVID-19. The Metro, which suspended its services in March, reopened with caution putting into place a series of measures such as thermal scanners and sanitisers among others to enable commuters to adhere to COVID social distancing protocols.
