Covid Cases In India: The Indian government has increased its preparations in response to a global increase in Covid cases. The Union health ministry has asked the states and union territories to hold mock drills at all health facilities on Tuesday to ensure the readiness of the COVID-19 health facilities to meet the increase in clinical care needs due to any surge in cases.

As the number of active coronavirus cases in India increased to 3,424 on December 25, states improved the nation’s testing infrastructure and issued guidelines for people to follow. To deal with Covid cases and slow the spread of the pandemic, many states have begun to take action or develop new regulations for the public to follow.

 

Because current vaccinations are based on the Wuhan or original strain of SARS-CoV-2, efforts are being made to develop vaccines that target the newer variants as India and the rest of the world grapple with the threat of a second Covid spike caused by the BF.7 sub-variant of the Omicron virus.

Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan had earlier on Saturday written to state and union territorial health secretaries about holding mock drills on December 27 at all health institutions (including recognised COVID-dedicated health facilities) across the country, according to news agency ANI.

Earlier on Thursday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi presided over a review meeting with the states. PM Modi urged the states and UTs to take the necessary steps to halt the spread of the COVID variant BF.7 at the meeting.
