The government is preparing to take strict steps regarding the ongoing Kumbh in Haridwar. The Tirath government of Uttarakhand has churned in this regard on Wednesday. Subodh Uniyal, the national spokesperson in the government, said, “Due to the crowd, there are constant problems in following the guidelines issued for Kovid-19 in Kumbh. The cases of corona positive are also increasing among pilgrims and saintly saints. In such a situation, some strict steps can be taken. Uniyal said, ‘The number of sages and saints in the Kumbh can be limited. Time can be set, so that only a fixed number of times remain present in the Kumbhasthal in a fixed time of day. ‘
He told, ‘Some special rules can be made especially for Har Ki Pauri. The essentials of social distancing and masks can be strictly enforced. ‘ Uniyal said that apart from Kumbh, the number of people attending the wedding can be reduced to around 50. Full curfew can be imposed on Saturdays and Sundays. Asked whether Kumbh can be finished before time? He said, the government is not thinking so at the moment. We are preparing to take some strict steps to prevent the explosion of the epidemic. On the other hand, DGP Ashok Kumar has currently expressed ignorance about any such order. But he said, maybe some decisions should be taken.
According to the fair administration, on April 14, more than 10 lakh people took a dip in the second royal bath till 5 pm. There was a crowd of bathing people there. The next royal bath will now take place on 27 April.
After the first royal bath on April 12, DGP Ashok Kumar said that in view of the crowd in Kumbh, we have increased the Corona Testing to more than 50 thousand. On 11, 12, 13 April, 53000, 49000 and telescope 60,000 people were tested continuously. About 800 people came positive on the first day, that is, 1.5 percent people were found infected. By the second day, this figure was about 900, and on the third day, around 1000 people were found infected.
However, the administration and DGP Ashok Kumar had clearly acknowledged that following the Corona guidelines was no longer possible. Ashok Kumar had said that we strictly followed the guidelines till 9-10 April but after that there were problems in disciplining the crowd.
