Can weddings lead to 3rd COVID wave in India?

Recently, many of you participated in the circle survey on attending weddings in the coming weeks. Below is the link to the survey report which you are requested to share widely for awareness via whatsapp and social media

Weddings could lead to a 3rd wave of COVID-19

With 38% of respondents not finding weddings high risk and one in 5 families attending weddings, if extrapolated we have tens of millions of our population attending weddings believing the same.

While celebrations and weddings must happen, they must be limited this year to minimum participants in favour of a bigger celebration on perhaps the first anniversary, all in the interest of own's safety and safety of family and friends.

Do share your thoughts and inputs as always! more

Our problem is everyone thinks laws and rules are for others and not for him/her. While restricting number of people in a wedding is a welcome move, but problem is more acute in our marketplaces, particularly such as wholesale sabjimandis and those of groceries. While gathering in a wedding is occasional, those in these mandis is a every day feature. Add to these are the political and religious gatherings along with dharnas & processions in which everyone gives two hoots to wearing of masks and keeping safe distance. more  
Yes the gathering must be controlled strictly to stem COVID. Besides this the increasing use of fire crackers add to the pollution of the air which adds to aggravate the vulnerability for acquiring COVID. That too must be strictly banned and checked with heavy penalties. more  
Though permitted 100+ Many Restricting invites to 30 maximum. It is the question of COVID invitation too. more  
Why only weddings. Where ever people accumulate without a care for social distancing like funerals, markets, Cinema theaters etc, Covid 19 3rd, 4th, 5th wave. will start more  
The public are conscious and marriages are mostly being conducted within the frame work of the guidelines. The restriction should continue for some more months, untill the situation come within control. more
