With COVID cases showing an upward trend, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya is scheduled to have a meeting with Health Ministers of all States and Union Territories on Friday, according to sources.

Earlier this week, the COVID empowerment working group also conducted a review meeting and said that India needed to be alert and not worried.

“Currently, the sub-variant of Omicron, which is circulating in the country, hasn’t increased hospitalisation,” Mr. Mandaviya said on the COVID-19 situation in the country.
