People don’t need to panic over China coronavirus surge


According to experts, the current Covid surge in China is unlikely to impact India, but they urged people to stay cautious and wear masks. India has stepped up surveillance after a spike in cases in neighbouring China. Experts have advised to avoid unnecessary crowding and people should wear masks if large gatherings can’t be avoided. People travelling from China and four other Asian countries now have to produce a Covid-19 negative test report before entering India. India has administered more than 2.2 billion doses of the Covid vaccine so far, including for both doses and the booster shot, which India calls a precaution dose.
