Despite the fact that over 90% of the population of the nation has received a Covid-19 vaccination, incidences of the virus have been increasing in India since late February. This is due to the fact that, according to specialists, the XBB.1.16 Omicron subvariant of SARS-CoV-2 is more contagious than previous SARS-CoV-2 strains and has evolved the ability to evade the protection provided by Covid-19 vaccinations.
