While coronavirus cases have been rising in India amid the second wave, the National Vice President of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) Dr. Navjot Dahiya called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “super-spreader” of COVID-19.
Dr Dahiya told The Tribune that the medical fraternity has been trying hard to make people understand the COVID-19 norms but PM Narendra Modi did not hesitate to address big political rallies tossing all COVID-19 norms in the air.
A few weeks ago, a large number of people gathered at the election rally during a campaign in West Bengal. PM Modi had said that there was a huge crowd of people and that he witnessed such a rally for the first time.
“You have shown your power and now the next step was more important – go and vote and take others also,” he had said.
The IMA national Vice President further said that the rallies and Kumbh Mela in Haridwar took place despite the major health crisis in India.
The impact of the second wave of coronavirus in India was visible across the country with increased deaths and long queues of ambulances outside hospitals, he said.
On Thursday, India recorded over 3.74 lakh new COVID-19 cases and more than 3,500 new deaths.
