The meeting was attended by Federal Interior Minister Amit Shah, Federal Health Minister Mansuf Mandaviya, Interior Minister Ajai Kumar Barra, Interior Minister Rajiv Gauba, and others.

The conference will be held on Sunday when the country reports new COVID-19 cases of over Rs 15,000 and the number of cases of Omicron variants of the virus reaches 3,623 in the country.

India has reported 1,59,632 new COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, with a daily positive rate of 10.21% in the country, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare said on Sunday.

Of the 3,623 Omicron cases, Maharashtra is at the top of the chart with 1,009 cases, followed by Delhi (513) and Karnataka (441).

The final meeting by Prime Minister Modi was held on December 24th. Since then, the country’s pandemic situation has changed, with large-scale surges recorded in daily incidents, making Omicron the dominant variant in many cities. Other developments made during this period include the announcement of election schedules in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Uttarakhand, Goa and Manipur, and the extension of vaccination programs. Teens between the ages of 15 and 18 have been vaccinated against Covid, but starting January 10th, preventative doses will be provided to front-line workers and older people with comorbidities.

On Sunday, India reported a case of 1.6 Rakı, with an active case load of about 6 Rakı. Some states have reinstated weekend curfew, curfew, and other restrictions to curb the epidemic of Omicron, which is believed to be driving the current surge.
