New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday voiced concern over the rise in coronavirus cases in India, and said people should take care of themselves as the government is “busy in sales”.
“Rising COVID numbers are worrying. Vaccination must pick up the pace to avoid serious outcomes in the next wave,” he said on Twitter.
“Please take care of yourselves because GOI is busy with sales,” the tweet added.
India saw a single-day rise of 46,164 COVID infections with 607 fatalities in the last 24 hours, pushing the country’s total number of cases so far to 3,25,58,530 and death toll to 4,36,365. The active COVID cases in country have increased to 3,33,725.
