At a time when Covid-19 is again spreading fast across the country, events like the Kumbh Mela pose a particular concern for the authorities. Big crowds near the river banks who wish to take a holy dip on the occasion, throw social distancing for a toss. Such a thing is being witnessed in Uttarakhand's Haridwar, where people have gathered for the second royal bath of the Kumbh early on April 12. The police said that it is very difficult for them to ensure social distancing or issue challans. This comes at a time when the country is trying to combat & control the spread of the second wave of Covid-19 that took the case tally to over 13 million. The Inspector-general warned that the enforcement of social distancing at ghats may lead to a stampede-like situation, reported ANI. Uttarakhand on April 10 reported 1,233 fresh Covid-19 infections, 317 recoveries, and three deaths. Covid-19 case tally in the state stood at 107,479, with over 6,000 active cases till April 10, reported ANI.
