Number Theory: JN.1 Covid sub-variant not a cause for concern

Dec 22, 2023 12:26 AM IST

Is there any cause for immediate concern about the return of the Covid pandemic? Not really

On Thursday, there were 594 new Covid-19 infections reported across India. Meanwhile, six more people (three from Kerala, two from Karnataka, and one from Punjab) lost their lives to the disease – the most in a single day in nearly seven months. Prompted by this, the Indian news cycle has once again started discussing the pandemic in excruciating (and often alarmist) detail. But is there any cause for immediate concern about the return of the pandemic? Not really, as shown by these four charts that highlight learnings from four years of the Covid-19 outbreak.
