India has again seen spike in the Covid-19 cases in 6 States majorly. The Union health ministry has suggested that there is a slight spread of SARS-COV-2 virus that is causing the increase in cases.
Due to this condition, the ministry has alerted and has sent a letter in concern with the rise in overall cases to 6 states which are Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka and has asked them to look into curbs and to follow a risk assessment-based approach.
“There are a few states which are reporting higher numbers of cases indicating possible localised spread of infection, and there is a need to follow a risk assessment based approach to prevent and contain the infection,” said Union health secretary, Rajesh Bhushan, had written in letter to these states.
In the second week of March from 9 to 15 there were a total of 3,264 new cases recorded which is more than that of the first week’s data that says the first week saw 2,082 cases.
