We have been here before – the new year is just around the corner and COVID-19 continues to impede lives across the globe. One could have been forgiven for thinking that the pandemic’s end was near as 2021 was drawing to a close, but Omicron has had the final say.
A new variant that experts have termed to have high transmissibility, Omicron has forced nations around the world to enforce strict restrictions.
India, too, has been seeing a worrying upward trend in coronavirus cases. The alarming rise has forced states like Maharashtra, Delhi, Kerala and Karnataka to clamp down on new year festivities.
