Are things going worse for India as far as the Covid situation is concerned? Will the Covid protocol rules of wearing masks and maintaining distance from others come back? The ongoing situations and developments in the country hint at the same raising many fears and concerns.

When everything was looking under control in India the new sub-variants of the Omicron variant which are ringing danger bells in many countries made their way to India and raised many concerns in India. The Covid infections triggered by the new sub-variants which are moving fastly are on a rise in a few states on average, the cases have gone up by over 10 percent.

XBB, a new sub-variant of Omicron which is creating havoc in the western nations found in a few states, and the other sub-variants of Omicron — BA.2.3.20 and BQ.1 variant are spreading rapidly.

The rise in the sub-variants is not a good sign for the country as the festival season is fast approaching. The festival of lights and crackers Diwali is just a few days away and there are high chances for people to gather together for festival shopping like sweets, dresses, and crackers.

Amid this, Indian Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya reportedly held a crucial meeting with the senior health officials on Covid emergence and the big rise in a few states.

After the meeting, the special body reportedly advised that the Covid situation cannot be taken for granted and the Covid appropriate behaviour like wearing facemasks and maintaining distance with others should be brought back as a safety measure before the situation turns disaster.

States like Maharashtra and Kerala which are seeing a steady rise in infections have asked people not to be careless and understand the seriousness of the situation. The concerned medical authorities urged people to visit the health facilities if they develop any symptoms.

The Omicron variant posed a big threat to the world. Now the sub-variants of the variant are ringing danger bells in countries like Singapore, the United States (US), the UK, Australia, and Belgium. Now it's the turn of India to face the heat with the foreign variants reaching the Indian states.
