    Dear Helath Misnister including yourself please check your team which was mask less and as per PM the lock down is with drawn but virus is still in a force . So first of all Health minister and team wear a mask and advise to others (educated and illiterate persons). So we hope that the state already taken a precaution measures to control Omicron virus.

    Its high time politicians practice what they preach. They ask public to wear masks,avoid crowding , etc and they themselves do not follow... Stop fooling people and if you are serious take steps to fet the healthcare system in order rather thanninvolving in blame games later. When othet countries are closing down borders why is this govt. Getting ready to open.. With everything opened up , preventive measures have gone out of thd window. Wake up from your slumber, and stop showing your incompetence. Its high time to start 5aking oreventive measures, and not wait for another disaster to strike before this tear gets over

    Prevention starts from distancing and wearing mask properly which is not seen in photo itself........ Ask your leaders to avoid Election Rally...... PM is very fond of seeing people in large crowd during Pandemic like in West Bengal which caused disaster during Covid Wave.

    Now India's nod for booster expected soon to frontline workers as per one of the minister. Again before the Omicron, no pilot testing or frontline workers become guinea pigs ? Then after somtime when booster is avaiable for omicron then again another booster ? Same thing happenned after 1st wave because of vaccines deadly strain of second wave but blamed on virus ? Looks like western elite and communist chinese using is viruses / strains / vaccine / boosters to knock out frontline workers so their vast military can provide frontline services worldwide and control the world Also looks like Media, health officials, politicians if they get commission from vaccine BigPharma they are happy, who survives who don't including themselves they do not care!

    The only preventative measure BJP knows is to hide at the first signs of trouble.
