Still dealing with 2nd wave, pandemic far from over: Govt


Maharashtra and Kerala recorded more than half of the coronavirus cases registered in India last week, the Centre said on Friday as it stressed that the pandemic is far from over and that people thronging tourist hotspots without following Covid-appropriate behaviour is a “serious cause of concern”. Lav Agarwal, joint secretary in the health ministry, said, “The country is still dealing with the second wave and we need to introspect if we can afford the misplaced belief that Covid-19 is over.”
