About The Gallery

According to the Union Health Ministry’s Covid-19 update on November 3, the gap between India’s recovered and active cases of infection has crossed 7 million. But even as active cases lower across the country, some states such as Manipur, Delhi, Kerala and West Bengal are continuing to see a surge in cases. The Health ministry's claims that new cases are a result of the festive season with people, now overcome by a sense of pandemic fatigue, are violating basic precautions stipulated for Covid-19 safe behaviour in public.
