Nagpur heads toward massive 3rd wave as cases rise, people continue to flout norms
Nagpur sitabuldi market on January 9, when the city recorded 723 new COVID cases
Nagpur, in all probability, is heading toward a massive third wave of COVID as cases in the district continue to rise and people continue to flout norms. In the above picture taken today in Sitabuldi market in Nagpur, people can be seen blatantly disregarding social distancing norms and head to the market despite drastic rise in cases in the last few days. The situation is more or less similar in other major markets of the city.
Nagpur city recorded 723 new infections on January 9 as opposed to 549 on January 8. On January 7, Nagpur city recorded 593 cases. Though there have been no deaths in the city due to COVID from a long time, the rising cases are certainly something to worry about.
On January 9, the Nuisance Detection Squad of Nagpur Municipal Corporation fined 41 citizens for not wearing masks. NDS also took action against seven establishments and collected Rs 65,000 as fine for flouting norms. On January 7, three lawns and organizers were collectively fined Rs 75,000 for flouting norms during wedding functions at the three lawns.
At the peak of the 2nd wave last year, Nagpur district recorded 8,000 infections in a day. If people continue to flout norms, Nagpur may overcome that scary number before anyone is even expecting. While many experts and doctors are of the opinion that the infection may not be very severe in the third wave driven by the Omicron variant, there’s no doubt that a massive third wave will not only disrupt our daily lives but also our livelihood.
