The ministry said that there has been an increase in recovery in the country. The recovery rate today is 97.2%. Luv Aggarwal said that we are still dealing with the second wave of Corona. We need to be careful. There has been an increase in corona cases in Britain, Russia and Bangladesh.
NITI Aayog Member (Health) Dr. VK Paul said that there is negligence in the markets and tourist places. So there appears to be a new threat, it is becoming easier for the virus to pass from person to person.
Paul said we can’t reduce security. A new risk is being seen at the tourist place, where the gathering of crowd has increased. There, neither social distancing is being followed nor are people wearing masks. This is a matter of concern. If this continues, the third wave may also come.
VK Paul said that the severity of Kovid increases in pregnant women, so it is necessary that we get pregnant women vaccinated. If pregnant women have corona then the risk of premature delivery increases.
