Less educated understand certain things better. This trend has been proved during the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic. In the first phase, densely populated, mostly slum areas had seen fast spread of the infection. Gandhibagh, Satranjipura, Mominpura, Pandhrabodi, slums of Somalwada had to declared containment areas.
In the second wave posh localities on Laxmi Nagar Zone, Hanuman Nagar, Dharampeth, Dhantoli are facing the brunt. Majority of cases are being detected from these areas. The slum-dwellers had faced criticism by the so called elite section of the society. Now the table has turned. Â
Gatherings of people from this section are either visiting key places or indulging in private get togethers at private places, enjoying parties etc. Marriages of prominent persons are held by violating the rules for attendance for such functions.
Satranjipura, Lakadganj, Ashi Nagar Zones are showing less number of Covid positive cases, compared to the zones having posh localities. The reasons for imposing strict rules are required to be understood by all. The spread can be controlled only by voluntary action and not by enforcing rules.
