  1. Government of Himachal Pradesh is often found ignoring protocols in respect of Corona & it’s new variant Omicron. The State has detected cases of Omicron, known to be fast spreading variant. Large gatherings may play havoc with people’s health. The neighbouring States,in this regard has already imposed night curfew in their States to contain the pandemic, but HP government in order to fulfil its political agenda ignoring the imminent risk to the health of general public.

    1. You are right, taking utmost precaution to fight the new Omicron variant of COVID 19 is very important to check its spread .
