Listen to the news

Omicron, a new form of the corona virus, is rapidly showing its wrath to the world. From America to Britain, the situation is getting worse. In India too, 113 omicron cases have been reported so far. On Wednesday, 78,610 new Omicron cases were detected in Britain, the highest in almost 12 months. What if Omicron spreads in India like the UK?

This question was answered by Dr. VK Paul, a member of the Nitish Aayog at a press conference of the Ministry of Health. According to Dr Paul, if the scale of the spread in Britain were similar to that in India, there would be 1.4 million cases per day in terms of our population.

Dr. Paul says Europe is facing a new phase of the global pandemic of the corona virus with an increase in cases of infection. He said it was not possible to do genome sequencing of each sample. Currently, it is a global epidemic monitoring and assessment tool. We can guarantee that the samples are taken adequately and systematically.

Paul says trials on Phase II and III of the Genoa MRNA vaccine are well underway. It is important to get full vaccinations, wear a mask, and avoid crowding. Vaccines available in India are effective. A scientific study on vaccine booster shots will be made soon. The first Omicron case in the country was registered on December 2.
