Twenty lakh people are currently being treated for Covid in the country. Omicron has been reported in 29 states and has so far been confirmed in 9692 cases. The Ministry of Health pointed out that the number of hospital admissions in the third wave was low and this was a benefit of the vaccination supply in the country.

Meanwhile, the central government has eased restrictions on foreign passengers. The Ministry of Health has recently recommended that those who have no symptoms, even if they are positive at the airport, should be monitored at home. The ministry also directed that the inspection be carried out after a week of monitoring. The Delhi government had recommended to the lieutenant governor that the weekend curfew be lifted in view of the declining positivity rate, but he did not agree. The lieutenant governor suggested that the restrictions be lifted only if the situation improved. But private companies are allowed to work with fifty percent of the workforce.Anil Baijal, however, told the government that the order should not be changed as businesses should be allowed to open on alternate days.
