Cases of JN.1 have also been found in Nagaland.

Corona cases have been comparatively less in China since the New Year, but now the Chinese government has warned that the cases of corona infection may increase this month. China's government media has made this claim in its report.

Danger of increasing corona infection in China

In fact, China's National Health Commission spokesperson Mi Feng told the media that there are currently fewer fever patients in Chinese hospitals, but the risk of respiratory diseases like influenza and Covid-19 still remains. Experts say that due to cold in China, cases of influenza virus and respiratory diseases like Covid-19 may increase. The Chinese government said that influenza infection in their country starts in October. The southern provinces of the country have seen a 36.8 percent jump in influenza cases. At the same time, cases have increased by 57 percent in the northern states. The Chinese government says that in many cases it has been seen that patients who were infected with Influenza A virus also got infected with Influenza B virus. This means that their immunity was weakened by influenza infection. In such a situation, there is a possibility that people with weak immunity may also become victims of corona infection.
