Corona spreads rapidly in India. The risk of corona is 7 times higher for non-vaccinators, but the vaccine can reduce the risk. The only solution to avoid corona is to implement SOPs. “People who have not been vaccinated should not go to tourist places during the Eid holidays. If you have not been vaccinated, you will be stopped at recreational places,” he added.
