Recently, an increase in the COVID cases has been seen in Maharastra, Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Punjab and Kerala. Experts have been trying to understand the reason behind the surge in the last two weeks. Dr. Paul has said “Public compliance for COVID appropriate behaviour cannot be diluted. Please avoid large gatherings, parties, weddings etc. These could be super spreading events”
Empowered Group Chairman R.S Sharma has said that upgraded CoWIN system has been providing a lot of flexibility in the vaccination process.
