Madhya Pradesh Minister Usha Thakur said she does not need to wear mask because she had been practicing "Agnihotra " a Ritual done to purify the air and the surrounding.
In spite of regulations and restrictions, thousands of people gathered in a crowd in some parts of India for Celebrating New Year . Parties , dance and nightclubs were on .To protect the people from viruses like Coronavirus and Omicron in india there have been made rules which people are supposed to follow in order to prevent the spread of virus.
People need to now strictly follow covid rules like wearing masks , using sanitizers, maintain social distancing, not go out of house unless it is absolutely necessary, take regular covid taste and take vaccination as fast as possible. Gathering in crowd is dangerous in such times.
But recently a very irresponsible act has been done by a Madhya pradesh minister named uma . She said to reporters that she had been practicing Agnihotra every day for the past 30 years every sunrise and sunset that is why her immunity is so strong that no corona virus can affect her .
The even more shameful thing is that when asked about seeming unwell , she said that she just has a cold and no viral infection or virus has affected her . If the Minister of Madhya Pradesh is behaving in this way how will the common man behave .
In May this minister of Madhya Pradesh got spotlight for performing havan and asked the people also to do a fire based ritual to purify the environment and stop corona .
Not only this lady but a lot of times it is seen that a large crowd is going crazy , dancing and enjoying , doing their work without wearing mask, without having social distancing and without following covid restrictions and rules .
Actions like this by people will prove seriously wrong for them . People might enjoy now but will have to pay the price later , doing such careless things and careless parties will be lethal for them also and people around them also.
People now not only have to deal with covid but also have to handle omicron . Omicron is a harmful virus however recent study of South Africa suggest that the number of chances of people going to hospital because of omicron are less and the number of deaths because of omicron will also be less . Inspite of all this we have to take precautions and stop the virus before it spreads .
