Diwali is being celebrated with enthusiasm across the country amid the prevailing Covid pandemic. People were found bursting crackers in Ludhiana to celebrate Diwali.

The Punjab government has allowed green crackers from 8pm to 10pm on the occasion, in the wake of a rise in air pollution. People were also seen celebrating Diwali in Patna with full vigour despite the coronavirus scare.

There is need to guard against carelessness in the fight against Covid and people should be careful because pollution has also started rising, Dr Ravi Malik, a former secretary of Indian Medical Association, said. “Carelessness has slowly crept inside people’s minds regarding Covid-19. We have started seeing public gathering and large scale functions…. At this time, people should be careful because pollution has also started rising,” Dr Malik said.
