Lockdown comeback! Central government sent team

The reason for the central government being active is the continuous increase in cases and two recent deaths. The government knows that just a few months ago, WHO has given relief by removing Corona from the global epidemic. It is not hidden from anyone what the condition of the country was caused by Corona in 2020 and 2021. People still get scared remembering that critical time. Covid had also hurt India’s economy. In such a situation, it is not a good thing for another virus to dominate the country. Therefore, the Central Government has sent a team of health experts there. She will find out about the situation there and the infection of the virus.
