Noting that third COVID wave might strike if citizens become careless, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Sunday urged them to take all precautions and follow Covid-appropriate behaviour.

As several covid related curbs have been relaxed in the state on Sunday, the chief minister said many relaxations have been given as the cases have reduced. However, he noted Corona is not gone yet.

The state government on Sunday withdrew curfew and reopened multiplexes and outdoor activities with certain restrictions in view of the constant decrease in the Covid positive cases.

"If we are negligent, then like other countries, there may be a third wave. There should be no need of taking strict steps like lockdown again. This will be possible only with the cooperation of everybody," he tweeted.

"But remember, although corona has reduced but it is not gone yet, so do not be careless at all. Follow the corona protocol, wear a mask and maintain social distancing," he said.
