कोविड की तीसरी लहर ना आए इसलिए कोविड प्रोटोकॉल का पालन आवश्यक है। घर से बाहर हमेशा मास्क लगाएं, दो गज की दूरी बनाएं एवं हाथ धोएं। अपनी बारी आने पर वैक्सीन अवश्य लगवाएं। आजकल लक्षण दिखने पर भी लोग टेस्ट नहीं करवाते। ऐसा ना करें एवं कोविड के लक्षण दिखने पर टेस्ट अवश्य करवाएं। pic.twitter.com/4pz9JFL9cW
