Union Health Minister cautions people against any complacency in adhering to COVID-appropriate behaviour

New Delhi: Stating that the sacrifice of so many Corona Warriors should not go in vain, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan on Friday cautioned people against any complacency in adhering to COVID-appropriate behaviour.

It was stated by the Union Minister after inaugurating the newly revamped Hardayal Municipal Heritage Public Library in Chandni Chowk, here. He dedicated the library that houses an enormous collection of rare books to the entire nation, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said in a statement.

He said the country’s steadily declining active COVID-19 cases, a trend sustained for 28 days and less than 1 lakh cases for the 4th day today, have allowed a sliver of opportunity to him to be with the people of his Constituency physically.

Strongly advising adherence to COVID-appropriate behaviour to everybody present on the occasion, he said the decrease in cases should never inculcate a sense of complacency among the public.

He noted, “This behavioural pattern of putting masks on and off intermittently, improper wearing of masks and not following the strict COVID norms contributed to the second wave of COVID.”

“When many of our doctors and nurses became Corona Warriors in an act of self-sacrifice to protect us, with many of them eventually succumbing to COVID, it is our moral duty to do the maximum to support them. The laxity in COVID-appropriate behaviour hurts the Pavitra Smriti of the fallen,” he said.
