Global Concerns around the new COVID Variant, Apart from this, there is another major concern at the global level regarding new variants of Covid. Due to the Delta variant and Omicron variant, there is a rapid rise in the cases of Covid.
India recently recorded more than 90 thousand Covid cases in a day and Omicron has crossed the number of cases to 2135. The highest number of fresh cases were recorded in Mumbai which is 15166.
As the cases are increasing, many states have started implementing strict rules and have imposed restrictions on unnecessary travel.
In such a situation, the continuous increase in cases can indicate the beginning of the third wave of Covid in India, due to which lockdowns can be done.
All these actions will have a direct impact on the economy and business, and due to this the market reacted negatively today and a fall was seen.
