Corona has once again created a ruckus in China. Corona cases have increased in many other countries as well. Meanwhile, the central government has also increased vigilance in the country. Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya is scheduled to review the pandemic situation on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Union Health Secretary has written a letter to the states and union territories. It states that in view of the sudden spurt in cases in Japan, the United States, Korea, Brazil and China, it is necessary to conduct genome sequencing of samples of positive cases coming into the country. This is necessary to track the dangerous variant of the corona through the Indian SARS-CoV-2 Genomics Consortium (INSACOG) network.
According to the Union Health Secretary, all states are requested to ensure that as far as possible, samples of all corona positive cases are sent to INSACOG Genome Sequencing Laboratories (IGSLs) on a daily basis. These laboratories have been mapped for all the States and Union Territories.
Things are normal in India at present
