As the COVID-19 caseload recently accelerated in India, the global community is debating the cause of this upsurge. 

Medical experts have warned that the new XBB1.16 coronavirus variant can evade people's immune systems, regardless of vaccine or naturally induced immunity.

For example, India's Ministry of Health reported 12,591 new cases and 40 deaths on April 19, 2023. 

Dr. Randeep Guleria recently told ANI .... while the country was seeing a fresh surge in Covid-19 infections, the situation isn't one to induce panic.... the majority of the infections are mild.

And the rate of hospitalization hasn't gone up either.

In reaction to this new data, most states in India have reordered COVID-19 vaccines, such as CoviSheld, CorbeVax, and CovoVax™.

As of April 11, 2023, a total of 2,206,624,273 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered in India.
