Innumerable tourists flocked to northern states like Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh for a holiday as soon as travel restrictions were eased in the state. Visuals that went viral from popular tourist destinations showed maskless people and overcrowded streets with no adherence to social distancing.
Recently, another such concerning video went viral which showed hundreds of maskless tourists bathing at Kempty Falls in Mussoorie, reports NDTV. No one seemed to follow any safety precautions whatsoever. Have a look at the video here:

Now when the 3rd wave will come who is to be blamed, currently there is no election rallies, or kumbh mela. We as citizen also don’t understand our responsibilities then we open our mouth to blame government. These type of people are called pade likhe gawaar.

How do these people even enjoy in such overcrowded places. I shrink even at the thought of a strangers wet sweaty body touching mine 🤢

Don’t give a fucks about peoples life anymore. They’re bringing it upon themselves. The only thing I’m concerned about is how it’ll affect the economy again.

Fools like this will bring in the 3rd wave & ppl like me who have stayed home for the past 1.5 years for the most, avoiding non essential travel, following covid appropriate behavior with double mask etc will be punished again with a lockdown. Is there no end to this? https://t.co/4dUDmRBvsg

It is extremely disappointing to see these people behave irresponsibly while the rest of the country battles a health crisis. We hope better sense prevails amongst others.
