Actually, there is no point making restrictions on restaurants and cafes only. Even offices should follow the rules strictly. Staffs/sales team who goes out for work returns to office without wearing masks and roams around the whole offices endangering others life too. Random strict inspection should follow inside companies, transports etc.
I hope the government will act soon.
