Amid Covid third wave warning, there have been overcrowding incidents such as hill stations, markets, malls and long lines for liquor are aiding the spread of the virus at an alarming rate.

After more than 3 crore Covid-19 cases and above four lakh deaths, experts warned that the third wave could hit India in six to eight weeks if Covid-appropriate behaviour is not followed..

The recent hill stations overcrowding incidents have been witnessed after the Covid second wave drop-down the health infrastructure to its knees with massive shortages of key medicines, hospital beds and oxygen supplies.

There was public outrage after the traffic crowd visuals surfaced on social media on the way to famous hill stations like Manali. Large numbers of people, some maskless, were seen visiting shopping districts with no social distancing.

Warning the tourists, the authority of Mussorie’s famous Kempty falls in Uttarakhand have allowed only 50 tourists with a maximum permissible time limit of 30 minutes. The authority also said a check-post will be set up to monitor the tourists. This development comes after videos, circulated widely on social media, showed a large number of tourists bathing at the falls without maintaining social distancing norms.

Apart from the crowding hill stations, there was heavy crowd in many liquor shops across the country while the fliers in flights are also dramatically increased in the past few weeks. Over the past few days, several passengers have accused that norms such as wearing masks and keeping social distancing are being overlooked.

However, what was shocking to see was the flouting of rules at local markets in Delhi, where people were seen maskless. Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) notified shop owners in the Laxmi Nagar market to briefly close their businesses for alleged negligence to adhere to social distancing and Covid-19 regulations.

At least three more major markets – Kamla Nagar, Sadar Bazar, and Sarojini Nagar – in Delhi have been given notices and advised for similar purposes either by the police or district administration in the last ten days.

Crowding is more at malls, garment shops, and other public areas due to the marriage season and other seasonal programmes have also increased.
