Experts believe that the new XBB.1.16 variant may be behind the increasing cases of Kovid, but there is no need to panic. According to experts, follow all the protocols related to Kovid. If someone has not taken the booster dose, then they should take this dose as soon as possible.
Earlier, Dr. Randeep Guleria, former director of Delhi AIIMS, had said that one of the reasons behind the increase in the corona and H3N2 cases could be the changing weather. He told that every year the cases of influenza increase, but there is nothing to panic about. Wear a mask, cover your mouth while coughing and keep sanitizer with you.
