Entire village in Lahaul tests Covid positive
MANALI: All residents of Thorang village of Lahaul valley in Himachal Pradesh, barring 52-year-old Bhushan Thakur, have tested positive for Covid-19. The Lahaul-Spiti valley has become the worst-affected district in the state in terms of population ratio.
马纳利：除52岁的Bhushan Thakur外，喜马偕尔邦拉豪尔（Lahaul ）山谷thorang村的所有居民均检测出新冠阳性。就人口比例而言，拉豪尔及思比堤（Lahaul-Spiti）山谷已成为该邦疫情最严重的地区。
The surge in cases in Lahaul valley has forced the administration to restrict tourist movement to Teling nullah near the north portal of the Rohtang tunnel. Tourists were not allowed to enter Lahaul villages on Thursday. The villages beyond the tunnel have been turned into containment zones.
According to officials, Thorang village along the Manali-Leh highway has just 42 residents as most people have migrated to Kullu for winter. The villagers had voluntarily decided to get tested a few days back. Of the total 42 samples, 41 tested positive.
"I'm staying in a separate room and have been cooking my own meals for the last four days. I was with my family members until we got to know about the results. However, I was strict about all protocols like sanitising hands, wearing face masks and maintaining social distancing when in public areas. People should not take this disease lightly. As winter season is setting in, people should take extra precaution," said Bhushan, whose five family members have tested positive.
According to sources, the villagers had gathered at one place during a religious programme a few days back. Social gathering is being blamed for the community transmission in the village. A large number of people in the surrounding areas have also tested positive.

Go 50Km out of any Class A or B city, and the people don't care about face masks, social distancing, cleaning hands, etc. The filthy conditions that we accept as the norm might be our best defence against viruses and other invaders. Why is it a surprise that these villagers tested positive?
This is situation created by people. No goverment can help such people if they dont follow guidelines
TRUTH BE TOLD
I feel covid in india is worse than what's been reported.
all because of Nehru, Gandhi and Pakistan.
Another masterstroke by Modi ji
Why test for corona if you have no symptoms. These villagers were not having any symptoms or were not unwell , its just the authorities who coerced them to take covid test. Had they not taken the test, they still would br fine.
Face Mask - Only Literate and most aware people know the significance of Mask I have not seen authorities fining people for not wearing mask. People are careless. The infection to Lahaul, most likely has come from people visiting from Urban areas.
Shocking yet tourists will throng.
So, it means that the village have achieved heard immunity??

Even the educated people are not bothered to follow the covid precautions. Who can help them ?
The situation in India is worse than it is reported.
Nothing to worry as they have heard immunity now they can attend more religious events freely
When everyone is covid positive, there is no need of social distancing
We pray for safety of the entire village
please please use mask and follow social distancing norms for next one year...

If we become careless, then COVID will attack. The best vaccination is to maintain precautions.
SITUATION CREATED BY PEOPLE. NO GOVT CAN HELP SUCH PEOPLE IF THEY DON’T FOLLOW GUIDELINES.
Very unfortunate. Wishing them all for a speedy recovery. Hope entire India now adhere to the covid-19 rules stipulated by the go nment agencies.
Only solution: wear mask, maintain distance and wash hand frequently
