Experts want Kumbh pilgrims tested | India News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Everyone who participated in the Kumbh Mela must undergo Covid tests on their return to Karnataka and must stay in home quarantine if found negative, say experts, who fear pilgrims could turn superspreaders. While the state government says it has no data on participants and may have to wait for people to self-declare on arrival, experts say details of the participants would be available with the Haridwar district administration and the government must make efforts to get them.
On Thursday, Karnataka health minister K Sudhakar urged those returning from the mela to stay in home quarantine and get themselves tested. “They can go back to their routine only if they test negative,” he said.
