A video has been circulating on the internet which shows thousands of maskless people taking a dip in the kempty falls, Mussoorie. Netizens have been expressing concern as tourists, visiting the hill stations have been violating the Covid protocols.
As the count of new Covid-19 cases has been declining in the country, tourists have been thronging Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh in large numbers. Many pictures are viral on social media where tons of travellers have gathered on the hill stations of video.
Recently, a huge crowd of tourists, violating Covid rules, was seen on social media and now another video of maskless tourists enjoying Mussoorie’s Kempty Falls has sparked fears in the minds of citizens.
The video shows hundreds of tourists taking a dip in the Kempty Falls, without face masks and violating social distancing rules. People are enjoying the waterfall-like they have forgotten that the pandemic is not yet over.
The video was first shared by an Instagram page called ‘So Delhi” and wrote a caption, “No so empty Kempty falls in Mussoorie! What are your views?”
Netizens expressed anger and concern and many have sarcastically said that these people deserve the third wave.
One user commented, “And then they gonna blame doctors and government. Good going people. I would request all the doctors to keep this video with you all and then when the time comes directly show them this video. They don’t have any rights now to question you and the government.”
Another sarcastically wrote, “sorry to say this but we deserve the third wave.” The third one commented, “And people are still thinking why the corona is spreading so much India.”
Experts have cautioned that a third wave of the pandemic may hit the country very soon, which is expected to affect children. SBI research in a report has said that the third wave is likely to hit India by mid-August and cases may peak during September. Pictures from the hill stations are frightening, said ICMR DG Dr Balram Bhargava, urging people to comply with Covid-appropriate behaviour.
