With temperatures rising in north India, people have been rushing to the hills to enjoy cooler weather. However, this has also led to a large number of tourists flouting Covid-19 safety rules and yet another video from Himachal Pradesh has started a serious conversation online. In the video going viral, a little boy is seen urging people to wear masks on the streets of Dharamshala.

In the clip shared by a local Instagram page, the child donning a mask himself is seen requesting people in a market to cover their faces. With a plastic baton in hand, the boy is seen stopping people sans masks. However, his pleas are ignored as adults simply smile at him and walk away. “This little kid was seen on the streets of Dharmshala, asking people to wear masks. He doesn’t even have shoes to wear,” the admins of the page wrote.

Reportedly, the child was seen requesting people to follow Covid-19 norms in Dharamshala’s Bhagsu Nag. As it went viral, many praised the “little corona warrior” and tagged authorities to ensure Covid-19 protocols are followed in the hill stations where tourists have been allowed since last month.

However, this is not the only video from Himachal Pradesh that has gone viral recently. Photos and videos of crowded Manali streets were also shared on social media, leading to alarm among locals and officials.
