Dr. VK Paul, Health Member of NITI Aayog, while showing the importance of masks and vaccines, said that both of them are very important. He said that regular meetings are being organized to keep an eye on the global scenario and the COVID scenario in India with focus on Omicron.
NITI Aayog Director General Balram Bhargava said that we should not spread panic. District level restrictions will be applicable if there is more than 5% positivity.
He said that the WHO is warning about the decline in the use of masks. The global landscape of Omicron is troubling.
