- Risk of corona infection hovering on the Indus border
- Mostly suffering from fever, cough and cold
In protest against the new agricultural law, farmers stayed on the Singhu border for the tenth day. At the same time, agitators are blowing the bugle on the Tikri, Chilla and Ghazipur borders. On Saturday, a large number of farmers appeared ill on the Singhu border. Harbir Singh, a farmer from Punjab, says that about 300 people are sick. Most of them have fever and some have cough. Farmers believe that this is happening due to staying in the cold, but the discussion is that they may also have corona. When police-administrative officials asked him to conduct a corona investigation, they refused.
Sources say that the farmers fear that they may not be quarantined for 14 days by making fake reports in the Corona investigation. There may also be a conspiracy of the center behind this, but officials say that the Delhi government is conducting the investigation, not the center. So there is nothing to fear, but the farmers are still not accepting.
Anchor of medicines
Drug langers are also being installed to serve the farmers. There, people are being told to prevent corona infection, but most farmers neither apply masks nor follow social distance. Therefore it is feared that if a corona is infected, a large number of people may be affected by it.
Protect others with yourself
Jugal Kishore, a doctor at Safdarjung Hospital, said that cold cough can also be caused by flu in general. The Corona era is currently underway. Therefore, farmers should not refuse to conduct an inquiry. Because, it is a question of their safety and that of others. He advised that there is no need to fear investigation.
