I am living in India... Very surprised and shocked at the carelessness of people partying and going on vacations despite the Pandemic.. Few of my known cousins and friends of my age group and older, have happily gone on picnics, some have travelled out station on vacation... In all their vacation pics and videos no social distancing and no mask usage is followed... All these are public tourist spots , not some private residence... Many are in high risk group, I.e some their small kids with them, atleast two of them were pregnant.. One relative took the elders of her family, her kid , husband for a vacation to one of the popular destination spot..and she herself was pregnant ... My friend has thrown a big party for her child’s birthday and invited many relatives and friends.. One more friend got married recently and I saw the live footage...large number of guests attended and hardly 2 to 3 people wore masks..no social distancing. Don’t know what these people are thinking... Everyone assumes that the pandemic has ended and everything is normal again... I’m not judging anyone.. But just wondering.. What makes people to take huge risks like this? Without any safety precautions?That too now that the new strain of corona has spread in many places and contact tracing Is still not done? Just wondering. ( Please do not ask me what my Christmas and year end plans are..it’s just the same household chores everyday without any rest or relaxation and entertainment and adjusting with in laws...how i wish the pandemic never happened so I too could have gone on a holiday trip).
