The Government of India says that no vaccine in the world prevents corona infection, rather it prevents death. In the weekly press conference of the Ministry of Health, ICMR DG Dr. Balram Bhargava said that whether it is the vaccine of India, America, or China, they do not prevent infection. Dr. Balram Bhargava said that it is necessary to use a mask before and after vaccination. He said that everyone should refrain from attending mass gatherings.


Precaution dose will save you from going to the hospital!

He said, “All COVID vaccines, whether they are from India, Israel, US, Europe, UK or China, are primarily intended to improve disease. They do not prevent infection. To reduce the severity of hospitalization and death.” This statement of ICMR DG has come at a time when India is preparing to give prevention doses i.e. booster doses to people above 60 years of age and health workers.

How will the new variant be treated?

Regarding the treatment of the new variant, ICMR DG Dr. Balram Bhargava said that there is no change in the guidelines. He said that the treatment guidelines for the previously and currently spreading variants of the coronavirus are the same. He said that home isolation remains an important pillar. During this, the Health Ministry said that after 180 new cases of ‘Omicron’, a new form of coronavirus, were reported in India in the last 24 hours, the cases of this variant in the country have increased to 961. This is Omicron’s highest number of cases reported in a day.
