If the state government and responsible officials do not do this, then the situation may become direr in the coming days.

No new variants have come to the fore

According to the team of the Union Health Ministry, which went to take stock of the deteriorating situation in Kerala, all the cases being reported in this state are from the delta variant only. Dr. NK Arora, chairman of the National Technical Advisory Commentary on Immunization, says that the cases of Covid are definitely more in Kerala, but no new variants have come to the fore. He says that unless arrangements like contact tracing, micro-containment zones. Home quarantine is not actively implemented, it is a bit difficult to control the situation.

Doctor NK Arora says that people in Kerala are getting the most infection who have not yet got the vaccine. He says that according to the serosurvey. About 80 percent of the people in North India have antibodies either due to being infected or due to vaccination. This is the reason that at present there is no major threat in North India. But Dr. Arora says that we will have to follow the Covid protocol for a long time to come. Because a little carelessness will again push us towards seriousness.
