The Manali SDM and his wife, Tehsildar and 22 other persons, including some tourists, have tested positive for Covid in Manali in the past couple of days. The SDM has gone into home isolation after his report came out positive four days ago. The health authorities have confirmed that at present there are 49 active cases in Naggar block.

The district administration and the health authorities have launched various awareness campaigns on Covid prevention, but most of the people have a lax attitude toward adopting precautions. Tourists and locals without wearing masks can be seen moving around in the market and tourist hotspots. Now, the risk of Covid surge has increased, which will compound the troubles of the administration.

Meanwhile, the Congress has the blamed the organisation of the Winter Carnival at Manali for the surge in Covid cases. Manali Congress president Harichand Sharma said that the danger of pandemic spread increased due to the gathering of a large number of people at the Winter Carnival at Manali.

Manali residents want the no mask no service rule to be adhered to strictly.

They say that the police should act tough with the rule violators.
