Uttarakhand witnessing fast growing corona cases ahead Mahakumbh: Kumbh 2021
| Wednesday | 31st March, 2021
People coming from other places if found to be corona positive should be isolated. This not only damages the reputation of the place but also sends a negative message among tourists.
With the recent increase in new cases of corona in Uttarakhand, reports of many tourists are also coming positive. Meanwhile, experts said that Haridwar and Rishikesh are emerging as hotspot areas of Corona. Concerned about this, the hotel owners have requested the state government to conduct a random test of the guests.
There is a possibility that Mahakumbh may emerge as a super-spreader. Hotel businessmen and people related to this industry are worried due to the rising corona case in Rishikesh. Many people visiting Mahakumbh starting from 1 April are either visiting Rishikesh or traveling due to better hotel and Dharamshala accommodation.
Hotel Greater Rishikesh President and Resorts Association, Vijay Bisht said that the increasing number of tourists is a matter of concern for us. As more cases come up in the media, more tourists will avoid coming to Rishikesh which will affect our business. He said that due to the lockdown during the peak tourist season last year, we already had less business.
At the same time, the number of corona patients in Uttarakhand has crossed one lakh. On Tuesday, 128 new corona patients were found in the state, while two infected people died.
