New Delhi: CoronaVirus New Guidelines: Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya on Wednesday chaired a meeting to discuss the Covid situation in India amid a rise in cases in China.
Chaos has spread across China after the government lifted strict lockdown guidelines as part of its zero-covid policy.
The country’s crematoriums are overcrowded, with the government denying the death toll is more than ten.
As Corona has spread to India’s neighboring country, the Health Minister held a meeting with representatives of the National Center for Disease Control (NCDC), the Indian Council of Medical Research and the Department of Biotechnology.
With health experts estimating that more than 60 percent of China’s population is likely to be infected with the virus in the next three months, India swung into action and Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya held a meeting to review India’s Covid preparations.
After the meeting ended, Mansukh Mandaviya said – Covid is not over yet.
I have directed all those relatives to remain alert and strengthen surveillance.
After the meeting, Niti Aayog member Dr.
VK Paul advised people to wear masks in crowded places to prevent the spread of the virus, amid fears that a wave of infections in China may be caused by a new mutation of the corona virus.
VK Paul has also advised people who have not received a booster dose of the Covid vaccine to receive a third dose of vaccination.
VK Paul said – if you are in a crowded place, indoors or outdoors, use a mask.
This is more important for people with comorbidities or older age.
The meeting came a day after Union Health Ministry Secretary Rajesh Bhushan asked state governments to submit samples of positive cases to genome sequencing laboratories on a priority basis.
In a statement issued by the Ministry of Health, the secretary said that it is necessary to increase the genome sequencing of positive case samples to track variants through the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACoG) network.
