We need to do two things to protect ourselves, the first one is to take vaccines and the second is to follow Covid-appropriate behaviour, said AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria.
New Delhi: With the number of Omicron cases increasing in the country, AIIMS chief Dr Randeep Guleria on Wednesday listed two ways people can protect themselves.
Calling Omicron, a more transmissible variant, Guleria said that people must take COVID-19 vaccines and follow COVID-19-appropriate behaviour.
On Monday, Dr Guleria had said that COVID-19 vaccines can be “tweaked” to provide protection against new variants of the virus.
His remarks came amid the ongoing debate about whether a booster shot is needed to increase antibodies.
Speaking at a programme organised here in Maharashtra on Sunday, Dr Guleria said that as far as the severity of the Omicron variant is concerned, the next few weeks will be very crucial.
