In conversation with Karan Thapar, Professor Ashish Jha has said the Kumbh Mela "shahi snans", when two and three million people gathered together without masks and social distancing, would be the biggest super-spreaders in this pandemic’s history.
All devotees of Gujarat who went to Kumbh Mela will not be given direct entry to their village on their return. All ppl will be tested for RTPCR. Ppl found infected will be kept in isolation for 14 days. Orders issued to all District Collectors: Gujarat CM Vijay Rupani (File pic)
In January 2019, the holy city of Prayagraj will host the Kumbh Mela. This is an important event, one with deep historical roots and an occasion for self-discovery. Do visit Prayagraj for the Kumbh and do share your photos on social media. #MannKiBaat
#WorldCultureFestival is a Kumbh Mela of culture…a great confluence of people from all over the world. Glad to be a part of the festival.
