In a big move, PM Narendra Modi to hold a high level meeting to review the Covid-19 related situation and preparedness. The meeting is likely to commence today at 4:30 pm in the evening. The crucial high-level meeting comes at a time when the Covid-19 cases are again on a sharp rise in the country. The unseasonal rains in March may have contributed to the rise in flu cases as believed by several medical experts. Not just cases related to H3N2 virus are on a rise, recently, there was a sharp surge in Covid-19 related cases as well. Symptoms of both Covid-19 and H3N2 are similar in many ways and the rise in the cases have prompted the government to take measures and this is what is said to be one of the reasons for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to chair this high-level meeting.
According to data put forth by the Union Health Ministry on Wednesday, India recorded 1,134 new coronavirus cases, while the active tally of Covid-19 infections rose to 7,026.
