The Maha Kumbh’s third royal bath will take place in New Delhi on Wednesday (April 14). On this day, a number of devotees will take a holy bath in the Ganga river at Har Ki Pauri in Haridwar.
When the country is battling the second wave of COVID-19, the Maha Kumbh is held. Due to the COVID-19 guidelines, the general public is only permitted to visit the Bramha Kund until 7 a.m., after which the area will be reserved for akharas. Devotees, on the other hand, are now permitted to take the holy dip on other ghats.
Officials previously announced that on the occasion of the second holy dip, more than 3.1 million devotees had bathed in the river by Monday evening, with many more expected to do so.
As over 20 lakh pilgrims arrived at different ghats in the district on the occasion of ‘Somvati Amavasya’ on Monday, the Maha Kumbh Mela authorities in Haridwar are struggling to ensure COVID-19 based guidelines.

In the Maha Kumbh in Haridwar, most people were not wearing masks or following social distancing protocols.
“We are constantly urging people to adhere to COVID-19 best practices. However, due to the large crowd, issuing challans is virtually impossible today. At ghats, maintaining social distance is extremely difficult “Sanjay Gunjyal, the Inspector General of the Kumbh Mela, said
“If we try to impose social distancing at ghats, a stampede-like situation will occur, and we will be unable to enforce social distancing here,” he said on Monday.
Meanwhile, according to official figures released Tuesday morning (April 13, 2021), India reported more than 1.60 lakh COVID-19 cases for the second day in a row. In the last 24 hours, India has seen 1,61,736 new COVID-19 infections, 97,168 recoveries, and 879 deaths.
