Expressing his views, Dr Arora said, “COVID is very much around us and there is quite a significant transmission of viruses going on. Although we do not see a severe form of it and fortunately the number of deaths is extremely low.”
Adding more, he said that booster doses will act as insurance for our health in the future. “I request everyone to take precautionary doses as our antibodies decrease after 6-8 months. Booster doses will act as insurance for our health in the future. According to the data, in last 8 months, 90% of patients admitted to hospitals haven’t received booster doses.”
