Kumbh Mela

Kumbh Mela

Kumbh Mela ended on Friday. Even after the second wave of COVID-19 raged in the country, being one of the major religious events in the country 70 lakh people participated in the Mela.

Kumbh Mela is basically held for three months in which people gather in Haridwar to take a dip in the holy Ganga. But due to the risk of COVID-19, it began on 1 April.

During Kumbh Mela around two people, the covid test was undergone in which around 2,600 of the devotees tested positive for COVID-19. 

Arjun Singh Sengar, the Medical officer for Kumbh Mela said “ The situation was challenging for us as the crowd, though relatively smaller this time was big enough to violate the norms of social distancing.” During the Kumbh, three shahi sans took place which was observed to be a largely symbolic event. After the appeal made by the former Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the crowd at the Kumbh Mela started to decrease and on Friday Kumbh Mela came to an end.
