The operational readiness of health institutions is being examined in all states and Union Territories in case of another wave, since there have been reports of an increase in Covid cases in various nations.

Covid instances have recently increased globally due to the BF.7 strain, which is thought to be the main source of the increase, particularly in China and the US.
