UP government on Janmashtami: People had not yet emerged from the havoc of the second wave of Corona that in the meantime the fear of the third wave has again raised another alarm bell in the minds of the people. Corona cases are increasing in the country. A possible third wave may pick up further. Because the festive season has started all over the country. Corona cases have increased rapidly in Kerala after the celebration of Onam. In such a situation, a big question arises that what will be the situation in Uttar Pradesh, the state with the largest population of the country.
By the way, the cases of corona in UP are currently under control. Few new cases are coming in only a few cities but Corona is present among us. According to the report of 26 August, there are 342 active cases of corona in the state. A little carelessness can increase this number of 342 significantly. It is a matter of concern that the era of negligence has also started.
Janmashtami can become a big challenge
The time of festivals has started. The biggest challenge is Janmashtami celebrated on 30 August. There is a huge crowd in Mathura, but the temples of other cities also gather a lot of crowd. According to the estimates of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple management in Mathura, 50 lakh people can visit the city on Janmashtami this year. The gathering of hundreds of people together in the sanctum sanctorum of the temple can be extremely dangerous. Obviously, despite taking all precautions, all such temples can become the new super spreader of Corona. Kerala is the latest example of this where negligence is now overshadowing the Onam festival. Corona cases are increasing rapidly in Kerala. It is necessary to take a lesson from such a situation and be afraid.
UP government gave strict instructions on night curfew
Perhaps the UP government has also sensed this danger, so after the meeting of Team 9 held on 26 August, instructions were given that the police should strictly implement the night curfew starting from 10 pm. Janmashtami festival takes place around 12 o’clock in the night when Shri Krishna is born. On the other hand, claims are being made in Mathura to make such arrangements so that the spread of corona can be stopped.
Kapil Sharma, the manager of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi temple, said that within a radius of 3 kilometers of the temple premises, it is being announced from the mic that people should follow the corona rules. Apart from this, sanitizers have been kept at the entrance of the temple. Arrangements are being made to ensure that there is no overcrowding in the sanctum sanctorum. Although it is also true that it will not be possible to maintain a distance of 2 yards in any temple.
