A significant surge in Covid-19 cases in China has sent shockwaves across the world. Even Indian authorities have sprung into action with the centre issuing advisory to states and Health Minister writing to Rahul Gandhi to stop his Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Even though precautions are better than cure, should India press the panic button? Should we be prepared for a 2021 redux? Serum Institute of India Founder and CEO, Adar Poonawala who manufactured the widely used Covid vaccine Covishield assures, there is no need to panic.
He tweeted, “The news of rising COVID cases coming out of China is concerning, we need not panic given our excellent vaccination coverage and track record.
We must continue to trust and follow the guidelines set by the Government of India and @MoHFW_INDIA." China is battling one of the worst phases of the Covid virus.
