According to doctors and health experts, the second wave of coronavirus is back and happens to be deadlier than the first one. Regardless of the vaccines, people are still getting infected with the virus. If no proper measures are taken, the covid cases could go out of control. With Holi festivities around the corner, Doctors have warned about the risks pertaining to the second wave and the government too has issued some super spreader areas that have high transmission rates.
During the initial phase of the pandemic, the government had made division zones all over the country wherein all public places were closed and gatherings were restricted. With the surge in the COVID cases again, there has been a sudden increase in the number of cases for which the government has issued risk zones that are named ‘super spreader areas’. Public places like shopping malls, stations, places of worship have been placed in the super spreader category and in the wake of rising cases, the government has increased surveillance in these areas.
Holi celebrations will not be the same this year as the government has advised people to avoid mass gathering during the festival. Apart from Holi, other festivals like Shab-e-Barat and more are under the scanner. Everyone is requested to celebrate within the premises for safety reasons.
People are requested to wear masks while stepping outside and should avoid visiting public places. Maharashtra has been hugely affected by the second wave, and the Delhi government has started testing passengers at inter-state bus stands, airports and railway stations that travelling from Maharashtra. The second wave of Coronavirus is more fears than the first one and it is advised that one and all are safe, as per the government protocol.
