Let us tell you that during the Kumbh Mela, the debate was started in the country about the gathering of lakhs of devotees and due to this, the pace of Corona infection increased. Many well-known personalities across the country had appealed to stop the event like Kumbh.
Ignorance of Guidelines in Kumbh:
During the Kumbh Mela, about 50 lakh devotees along with the saints and saints had taken a bath in the Ganges during the two royal baths. In the first royal bath, where 31 lakh people had taken Ganga bath, in the second royal bath more than 14 lakh people had participated.
After the royal bathing program, hundreds of corona-positive cases were reported in the entire Uttarakhand including Haridwar, including a large number of saints. After this, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had appealed on Saturday that Kumbh should be kept symbolic now.
PM Modi talked to Mahamandaleshwar Swami Awadheshanand, the head of Juna Akhara, after which the announcement of the premature Kumbh was announced.
A record single-day rise of 2,34,692 cases and 1,341 fatalities have pushed India's COVID-19 tally to 1,45,26,609 and the death toll due to the viral disease to 1,75,649, the health ministry said earlier on Saturday.
