There is an increase in the cases of Covid in different parts of the country, but this time the center has become part of Delhi and NCR. Still, three thousand cases of Covid infection are being reported daily in the country, out of which more than 1500 cases are from Delhi-NCR only. Seeing the resurgence of Covid cases, all the states have started imposing some restrictions, such as Delhi, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh have made masks mandatory again. Meanwhile, in a survey, one out of every three Indians has expressed confidence that the fourth wave of Covid has knocked in the country.
For the last two weeks, the cases of Covid are increasing again in Delhi-NCR. According to India’s genomic sequencing data released till 16 April 2022, 80 percent of the cases reported so far may be of BA.2.10 and BA.2.12. Many health experts have expressed the apprehension that the BA.2.12.1 sub-variant may be the biggest reason behind the increase in the cases of Covid in Delhi-NCR. Let us tell you that due to this sub-variant in New York, there is an increase in the cases of Covid.

While 13 percent said that it would start in May-June, 7 percent believed that the fourth wave could start in July-August and 4 percent felt that in September-October.

When people were asked whether it should be started again, 83 percent of citizens said that the Health Ministry should make it mandatory, while 12 percent are not concerned with it. 5 percent of people did not give their opinion on this. 12,064 were received in response to this question.
