In Himachal Pradesh, cases of corona infection are spreading not from tourists coming from outside, but through weddings. Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur has blamed weddings for the spread of infection in Himachal. On the question of banning public meetings, the Chief Minister said that after reducing the number of cases of Kovid, permission has been given for public meetings and social programs. If the cases increase in the coming time also, then a decision can be taken in the cabinet meeting to be held on August 24. He said that at present there are around 2700 active cases of Kona virus. This is a matter of concern, the cases have increased in a very short time. The number of cases that are coming daily in Himachal are getting cured, but despite this, there is a need to be careful.
Most of the cases in rural areas are less at tourist places. Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said that cases of right infection are coming in rural areas in Himachal. Most of the cases are coming from many rural areas of Chamba district itself, while very few cases are coming from the urban areas including the major tourist places of Himachal. Which shows that there has been no impact in different parts of the state due to the arrival of tourists. He said that the main reason for the spread of this epidemic is social and marriage ceremonies. Due to marriages in Chamba, Mandi, cases have suddenly increased.
