Coronavirus Sparks Concern As India Records New Cases and Five Deaths

The spectre of COVID has returned to haunt the nation after a respite of one and a half years. The devastating impact of the ongoing pandemic continues to cast its shadow, instilling fear among people globally.

The sudden surge in cases can be attributed to the emergence of the new COVID sub-variant, JN-1, which demands heightened vigilance. The simultaneous presence of both COVID-19 and the JN-1 variant poses a dual threat, escalating the situation in India.

The Central Health Ministry reports a staggering 756 new infections and 5 fatalities in the last 24 hours, pushing the total number of cases to 4049. Among the deceased, two are from Kerala, two from Maharashtra, and one from Jammu and Kashmir.


Attributing the rise to winter conditions, the Health Ministry emphasises the need for increased precautions. It is suggested that a decrease in temperature could potentially reduce the spread of the virus.

The Health Ministry urges citizens not to succumb to undue fear but remains adamant about the importance of staying vigilant. Despite the reassurance, the total number of cases related to the JN-1 variant has reached 139 across the country, underscoring the gravity of the situation.

As the nation grapples with this renewed threat, the Central Health Ministry sends a message of caution to all citizens. While there is no cause for panic, heightened awareness and adherence to safety measures are crucial in these trying times.
