- Health department sends letter to Ayodhya after Nritya Gopal Das found corona positive, urging people to come in contact
- The movement of devotees continues in Sri Krishna's birthplace, due to the poor attitude of the health department, the danger of spreading the infection
Dr. Devendra Aggarwal, acting Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Mathura said that after the dance Gopaldas were found to be corona infected, they have sent a letter to Ayodhya urging them to investigate the people in contact with them. They had become corona infected several days before coming to Mathura. After coming here, his health deteriorated and investigation was done in which he was found positive.
The department was able to mark only 20 people
In Mathura, the Health Department is preparing a list of people who have come in contact with them. So far only 20 people have been identified. However, more than 200 people who come in contact with the Mahant are being told. These include his disciples, devotees, officials of Shri Krishna Janmabhoomi Seva Sansthan, priests, policemen, media personnel etc.
In marking these people the sweat of the Health Department is missing. Although some people have come forward themselves, but some people are hiding the talk of meeting Mahant Nritya Gopal. Dr. Himanshu Mishra, National Health Program Officer of CMO office has been assigned the responsibility of marking these people.
Neither Bhagwat Bhawan was sealed nor people were identified
Hundreds of people joined Mahant Nritya Gopaldas Maharaj at Bhagwat Bhavan on Sri Krishna Janmashtami. Among them were people from many other cities besides Mathura. Here, the security personnel engaged in the security of Shri Krishna's birthplace and the artists and media personnel accompanying the Bhajan singer are also included.
Devotees have started coming to Sri Krishna's birthplace since two days. There is a danger of spreading the infection to the devotees and locals visiting here. The health department has not been able to identify the people who participated in the program here in two days. The administration has not yet sanitized Sri Krishna's birthplace.
How to sample VIP people
Many VIPs and administrative officials attended the celebration of Janmashtami at Sri Krishna's birthplace. The Health Department is sweating to take samples of all these. It is said that there is also pressure on the health department not to take samples.
