Covid-19 cases in India

Coronavirus has taken the world by storm. As the Covid-19 cases are rising at a rapid pace, it is reasonable to predict that the third wave is not far. To control the coronavirus cases and sudden rise in Omicron variant in Haryana, the government has issued fresh guidelines.

According to the government, these restrictions will come into force from January 2 till January 12 in those places that have the highest daily infection rates. Gurugram, Faridabad, Ambala, Panchkula, and Sonipat districts are among those cities.

Haryana’s new guidelines

  1. As part of the state government’s restrictions imposed on Saturday, cinema halls and sports complexes in Gurgaon and four other Haryana cities will be shut.
  2. Schools will remain closed till January 12.
  3. Furthermore, all government and private offices, with the exception of those providing emergency or critical services, have been urged to operate with half-staffing.
  4. Malls and markets are allowed to stay open till 5 p.m., while bars and restaurants have been given permission to operate with just half of their seating capacity.
  5. Moreover, according to the State Disaster Management Authority’s decision, only fully vaccinated people are permitted to enter vegetable markets, public transportation, parks, religious institutions, restaurants, and other places around the state.

The Haryana government had previously imposed a statewide night curfew from 11 pm to 5 am.

According to the order, the restrictions were imposed due to a significant rise in coronavirus infections in the state and the emergence of the new Omicron variant.

On Friday, Haryana reported 26 cases of the Omicron strain, bringing the total number of such cases in the state to 63. According to a health advisory, 23 of the total cases are active, while others have been discharged.

In an accident, six children were killed and as many as 15 injured after a private school bus carrying them lost control and overturned in the Kanina area of Mahendragarh district in Haryana on Thursday.

After the incident, students were rushed to the Nihal Hospital in Mahendragarh district in the State.

Doctor Ravi Kaushik of Nihal Hospital in Mahendragarh said that four students were brought dead and one critical student who was put on a ventilator passed away at the hospital. Fifteen injured students have been referred to another hospital. SDM and administration were present, he added.

According to officials, a private school bus carrying 40 children was en route to school despite a holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr. The bus belonged to GL Public School, a private school in the district.

Officials stated that the accident near Unhani village in the district resulted in injuries for several others. Following the accident, a large group of people assembled at the site.

According to District Education Officer, the driver was probably under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident. Police have said that the investigation into the matter is still on.

Official documents show that the bus’ fitness certificate had expired six years ago in 2018, as per the report.

A student, who suffered injuries after a private school bus met with an accident in Mahendragarh’s Kanina, said that the driver was drunk and he kept the speed at 120 which led to a misbalance.

Speaking to reporters, the Mahendragarh District Collector Monika Gupta said that it has come to notice that this was a private school which was being run even on a holiday and action will be taken. Six casualties have been reported, she added. Treatment of the injured children is going on. Now there is no danger to anyone’s life. The government is providing them with the best possible treatment. There was also a lack of documents in the vehicle, so an FIR is being lodged against the school administration as well, Gupta further said.

According to reports, the incident has left people in shock, which took place at the Chandravati School in the Tauru area in Nuh district on March 6. It was reported that the paper had been allegedly leaked shortly after the commencement of the board exam.  

Taking cognisance of the matter, the District Education Officer Paramjeet Chahal said that he had come across the video and said some newspaper cuttings that some children had climbed up the roof of a school. He further said that he had asked for a report regarding it.

The incident has sparked widespread condemnation from people. The locals were alarmed by the blatant disregard for examination protocols and captured the event, which prompted an immediate response from education authorities. As a result, an investigation was ordered to identify the individuals involved, and officials have vowed to take stringent action against those found guilty of facilitating cheating for students.

This incident has also prompted a reassessment of security measures at examination centres and the Haryana School Education Department needs to implement more robust mechanisms to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Last year in February, an incident from Bihar’s Samastipur got the attention of the people where students were reportedly helped by their relatives to cheat during an exam in Sant Kabir College. The video of the incident was viral on the internet and became a hot discussion in the country.

The alleged relatives of the students were seen holding out their phones through the channel gate in order to show the students the right answer. Not only one but a large crowd of people were seen standing outside the channel gate to help the students cheat.
