The next 40 days will be significant because, according to official sources who cited the history of prior outbreaks on Wednesday, India would experience a spike in COVID-19 cases in January.
“In the past, it has been observed that a new COVID-19 wave arrives in India 30–35 days after it does in East Asia. This has been a pattern, according to an official.
However, according to officials within the Health Ministry, the virus is only somewhat severe. Even if there is a wave, they predicted that hospitalisation and death rates will be quite low.
The government has issued a notice and instructed states and Union territories to get ready for any situation as a result of an increase in COVID-19 instances in various nations, notably China and South Korea.
Meetings have been held between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya to evaluate the nation’s readiness to handle a recent spike in cases.
The Omicron sub-variant BF.7 is what is behind the most recent increase in cases.
According to official sources, this BF.7 subvariant is highly contagious and can infect up to 16 more people.
