june 25, 2021 Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Friday asked the government why “large-scale testing is not being done” to check and prevent the spread of the Delta plus variant of coronavirus and how effective are the vaccines against it.
Many experts feel that the Delta plus variant, which has been declared as a ”variant of concern” by the Union health ministry, may trigger a third wave of Covid-19 infections in the country.
“Questions to the Modi government on Delta plus variant: Why is testing not being done on a large scale to check and prevent it? How effective are the vaccines against it and when will complete information be available? What is the plan to control it in the third wave of the virus,” he posed in a tweet in Hindi.
