The Congress on Sunday said the government has failed to control the spread of the virus and demanded that it spells out a comprehensive plan for increasing vaccination in the country. The nation has been witnessing a spike in coronavirus cases recently and recorded 43,846 new instances of COVID-19 in a day, with global contribution going from 2.4% to 9.4%, and global deaths going from 0.9% to 1.7%.

Congress Spokesperson Abhishek Manu Singhvi questioned why covid was allowed to spiral out of control and urged the government to take action before the second wave hits.
