Within a month, COVID 19 adapted with a new variant which the world named Omicron. In India, COVID 19 Omicron cases are nearing the 1,000 mark with 13,154 new cases, and the Omicron tally reaching 961.
Delhi getting the highest number of Omicron cases issued a Yellow alert for all their citizens. It recently crossed Maharashtra regarding the same. Theatres have been shut down, wedding events are limited to 20 guests, and night curfew is imposed from 10 pm to 5 am. It seems like a lockdown-like situation is in place for Delhi.
However, with rising cases, the number of severe cases and the death toll is fairly less like how it was before during the 2nd wave of COVID 19. It looks like both the virus and humans are adapting to each other in their own ways.
