Patna: While the government is fully vigilant about coronavirus and is taking all precautionary measures, people are now turning to God to avoid being infected.
In order to protect the world from the infection, Havan-pujas are being organised at many places in Patna, while a three-day monolithic recitation of Sri Guru Granth Sahib has been organised in Sri Harmandirji Sahib gurdwara in Patna.
This monolithic recitation began on Wednesday and will end on Friday.
The President of the Patna Sahib Management Committee, Avtar Singh said that after the unbroken recitation by the grace of Guru Maharaj, the infection of coronavirus will be eliminated from the whole world.
A havan was also organised at M.G. Park in Kankarbagh to avoid the effects of COVID-19. People involved in this event said that many types of herbs were added to the havan material. Meanwhile, a havan yagya was performed on Wednesday at the high school ground in Paliganj for the purpose.
Also, a Vishwashanti Yagya-Havan was organised at the Mahamaya temple premises in Juran Chapra in the Brahmaputra police station area in Muzaffarpur district.
Acharya Ranjit Narayan Tiwari, who has performed the havan, said that when medicine and prayers stop working then only God’s support remains the final option. He said that this havan will not only relieve Muzaffarpur and Bihar, but the world will also get respite from the havoc of coronavirus.
Apart from this, in many temples prayers and havans are being performed to prevent the spread of this infectious disease.
Meanwhile, 72 coronavirus suspects were tested but no one has been found positive so far.
According to the Bihar Health Department, a total of 354 passengers who returned from Corona-affected countries have been placed in isolation since January 25, of which 113 have completed 14 days of isolation.
The Bihar government has ordered legal action against the people who are not cooperating in the treatment to avoid the spread of coronavirus. It has also implemented the “Epidemic Disease, COVID-19, Manual 2020” on the recommendation of the health department.
