He mentioned that India was one of the nations that dealt with the Covid situation better than many governments; and these increasing Covid cases are a signal to be cautious and prudent again.
Meanwhile on an international tier
The World Health Organization (WHO) prompted every administration to maintain an oversight of the increasing Covid cases. WHO says that it is acquiring lesser and lesser data about the mutations; and sequencing due to the diminishing Covid testing rate.
For this reason, the WHO is being rendered unsighted in the ways of transmission of the new Covid strains. It said that the Covid virus is still changing, affecting and killing people; this reminds the nations that ignorance is not affordable in this scenario.
