An awareness campaign of coronavirus has now been launched in Manali, after the region witnessed huge influx of tourists, following the relaxations related to covid-19.

Referring to this, Police official said that he has started this campaign to make tourists aware. He said that those who do not wear masks can be fined Rs 5000 or jailed for 8 days. He also informed that the police have registered more than 300 challans and recovered Rs 3,15,000 in the last 7 to 8 days.

Pictures of congested Manali have been doing the rounds on social media for some time, raising fears about an imminent third wave of covid-19. Recently, the Center also raised an alarm against the journey of revenge which is fast becoming a norm.

Earlier this week, the Union Health Ministry had warned that it would re-impose restrictions if people continue to break the coronavirus protocol. Referring to the influx of tourists into the hill stations, the Health Ministry reiterated that gross violation of coronavirus's due diligence can nullify the gains achieved so far.

Kempty Falls in Mussoorie witnessed a similar incident when hundreds of tourists gathered at the popular tourist destination, disregarding the covid-19 protocols. After the video of this incident went viral on social media, the administration has issued new instructions.
