Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has flagged a new Covid variant which he said has been detected in Singapore and is proving dangerous for children. Arguing that it can “come as a third wave” in India, he suggested that the Centre takes immediate measures, including suspension of flights to and from Singapore.
“The new form of Corona that came to Singapore is being said to be extremely dangerous for children, in India it may come as a third wave. My appeal to the central government: 1. Air services with Singapore be canceled with immediate effect 2. Priority on vaccine options should be worked out for children too,” his Hindi tweet read.
The Delhi Chief Minister’s tweet comes amid concerns being raised over a third wave.
