Health experts say that there is no need to panic due to the increase in cases at present as no new worrying variant of corona has been found in the country. This increase in cases is limited to a few districts. Experts also cited non-adherence to COVID appropriate behavior and negligence on the part of people in taking booster doses.
Dr. NK Arora, President, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI) says that apart from the more infectious BA, only BA4 and BA5 variants are being found in the country. There has been an increase in the movement of people due to the summer holidays. At the same time, economic activities have been completely opened and travel restrictions have been eased at the national and international level. This could also be the reason.
According to the report of the Union Health Ministry, there has been an increase of 4,103 active cases in the country and their number has increased to 40,370, which is 0.09 percent of the total cases.
