“The [B.1.617, B.1.351 and B.1.1.7 variants] are categorized as ‘variants of concern’ by the World Health Organization [WHO], because these [Covid-19] strains greatly increase their chances of transmission,” he said.

“It is imperative that we isolate those who are transmitted [by these mutations]. We should also be disciplined in carrying out testing and tracing to find these cases.”

The Worldometers website said that India has 25,495,144 Covid-19, the second highest number of cases after the United States. 283,276 Indians have died of the coronavirus, while 21,979,703 people are confirmed to recover from Covid-19.

Many of the cases occurred during a surge of the disease last March and April.
