The said data shall be published by the State Government on a daily basis,” added the Court.The Court also stressed that until and unless a larger section of the population is tested for the presence of COVID-19 virus, it would be impossible to detect the spread of the disease through a large population.Apart from that, the Court perused the report submitted by the State Government which revealed that there is an absence of sanitization dispensers, manual dispensers, inadequate number of changing rooms and washrooms, lack of drinking water facilities, lack of testing kiosks for carrying out COVID-19 test, lack of CCTV cameras, and at many places the roads, leading to the Ghats, have yet to be constructed completely.Another area of concern which the Court, in its order noted, was related to the poor condition of the Hospitals & medical services spread throughout the Kumbh Mela area.Therefore, the Court directed that the Hospitals should be upgraded and should be given the required facilities so as to be able to tackle the re-emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Court also directed that a sufficient number of Jal Police should be deployed by the State Government so as to protect people from the possibility of drowning or being washed away by the rapid currents of the river.Other significant directions issued by the CourtNight shelters should not only be constructed and readied, but also be provided with mobile washrooms and urinals, and with drinking water facilities.Those who have taken their first dose of the vaccination, and are certified to be COVID19 negative, shall be permitted to enter the Kumbh Mela area.
