|People who shouted at the top of their voices calling Kumbha Mela a super-spreader of the second wave of Covid-19, were proved wrong based on this information. Will anti-Hindus open their mouth on this ?|

Sanjay Gunjyal said that on 1st April, when the Kumbha Mela started, number of Covid-19 patients had already started increasing due to the second wave of coronavirus in other States like Maharashtra, Haryana, etc. The analysis of coronavirus patients in Haridwar District from 1st January to 30th April shows that the perception of Kumbha Mela being responsible for increasing coronavirus infection is wrong.
