Experts in India explain COVID situation in the country, as China grapples with COVID surge

Meanwhile, the Delhi government has said that it is following the directions of the Central government and conducting genome sequencing of all the COVID cases.

Delhi was worst hit by the second wave of COVID which was driven by the Delta variant. Starting from shortage of oxygen supply to unavailability of beds in hospitals, the second wave is considered to be the worst wave of the pandemic so far.

On the preparedness for COVID situation, Dr Suresh, MD LNJP Hospital told ANI that, “no cases of BF.7 variant of Omicron have been reported in the city, we are fully prepared & vigilant. The Centre has instructed us to conduct genome sequencing of every case…We have COVID 450 beds, 50 ICU beds & other facilities.”

Meanwhile, the Aam Aadmi Party has urged the Centre in Parliament to stop flights through China as a measure to prevent spread of BF.7 variant, which is currently driving the COVID surge there.
