Despite rise in corona cases in Madhya Pradesh, markets continue to witness heavy festive rush . People are seen sans masks, violating Covid-19 protocols.

Ahead of the festivals, the administration had launched an awareness drive regarding Coronavirus guidelines, however, looking at the people blatantly flouting rules, it seems that the drive failed in its very purpose.

The authorities have resorted to penalizing the people found violating the protocol. However, it seems people have not learnt any lesson from the second wave and things are back on square one.
