Gangasagar mela in West Bengal draws lakhs of devotees despite COVID surge

Huge crowds of Hindu devotees, most without masks, are flooding the Ganges delta to take a dip in holy waters during the Gangasagar mela on West Bengal's Sagar Island. People from numerous regions are visiting the sacred place for Hindus crammed on buses, boats, and trains in order to reach the island.


According to government officials, the administration has allowed only those with vaccination certificates and negative PCR test reports, while thermal screening is in place. There are, however, concerns about the mela turning into a “super spreader event”.
