In northern India, tens of thousands of Hindu pilgrims have gathered for a festival, despite a huge jump in COVID-19 infections. The Magh Mela festival, which includes bathing in the Ganges river, is one of the holiest pilgrimages in the Hindu faither. Last year’s festival was described as a COVID-19 ‘superspreader’ event. How are pilgrims and the authorities dealing with the Omicron variant, which is driving massive case surges across India?

  1. Lets have some context especially with the omicron variant – 50 to 100million people globally come down with the common cold & sore throat daily that are linked to some 200 common viruses…..no big deal..

  2. What a gathering of superrrrr-spprrreadders, superstitious, mindless, rituals in the midst of a pandemic after all that happened in india in the recent past! And the BJP is riding the waves of the uneducated herd suupppeerrr- ssppprrrrreadderrrs.

  3. When you place religion high above science, your days are numbered !
    Half a million dead in that country but nobody cares! Their chief of staff general died in helicopter crash and the Indians like crazy!

  4. O look another super spreader event!

    People will get infected by dunking in the rivers and breathing ..

    If only the Germans could find something that stopped people from breathing … problem would be nipped in the bud..

    O wait they did that already 100 + yrs ago …Phosgene

    But the Germans are great – they want to pander to the BATTY CCP AND PLA and sell more BMW and Mercedes and Porsches and machinery to the Bio war m0ngers

  5. If It is holy dip
    Then what about Christmas celebrations.
    What about Bakrid Celebrations.
    Every One Are blamable.
    Every one are responsible.
    What ever it may be corona is with us

  6. India has stated it wants to compete with China. But while in China, people are working hard and producing products, millions and millions of semi-naked people in India are enjoying themselves in the toxic waters of the rivers. To compete, one must be innovative and work hard, to produce products and services. GDP cannot be built on the back of festivals, temples and prayers, or even hopes.
