At the beginning of the second wave of Covid-19, the number of infected people was high in the urban area of Tanahun. After the ban was issued saying it would be safe, the people living in the city started going to the villages. There were no restrictions on entering and leaving the village.
Worship and banquets were going on uninterruptedly in the village. Corona, who terrorized the townspeople, has now entered the village. In some villages, COVID has spread like wildfire. With caution in the city, instead, the rate of infection seems to be declining gradually.
Ajay Srivastava, chief of the health branch of Shuklagand Municipality, said that the corona was spreading due to the negligence of the villagers. “No precaution has been taken in the village. They farm together. The four of them sit together and gossip. Masks are not mandatory in the village, norms are not followed. One infected person spreads hundreds, ”said Srivastava.
258 active infected people are currently present in Shuklagandaki. In the PCR report of Swab tested in the last year, the number of those who tested positive is equal to that of rural and urban areas. Home Isolation has also contributed to the spread of the infection, said Srivastava, head of the health department.
