Hyderabad: New Year’s Eve is just around the corner and after a two-year hiatus from parties due to the Covid pandemic, the townspeople have been eager to get back to partying in full swing. However, the news of rising coronavirus cases in China is the worst mood dampener for most.

While some are rethinking their decision to join big parties and clubs, others are already opting for intimate house parties.
Shanti Gattineni, a Hyderabad-based banker working in Chennai said, “It has been a difficult journey in the last two years.

Finally, this time we made plans to spend the new year with family in Hyderabad and when we bought the tickets, the news broke bringing back the anxieties of the pandemic.

Even though the news caused a lot of emotions, it is necessary to be calm in front of the situation and face it rationally, he said that the citizens are done with vaccines and booster doses.

“The city had a terrible experience, but now we have learned the lessons. By now most people know what to do, what not to do and the measures to follow, so I think the only thing that needs to be done is to put it into practice,” said Abhilash Sankaramanchi, an activist in the city.
