Singapore Variant News: Arvind Kejriwal, the current and 7th Chief Minister of Delhi seems to be in the news for the wrong reason. A recent social media post by the politician about a Singapore Variant of the Covid 19 virus has enraged the foreign minister of Singapore, Vivian Balakrishnan.
Kejriwal recently tweeted about a dangerous Singapore variant of Covid 19 which may be deadly for kids. He warned the Prime Minister of India regarding this, and said that this might be the cause of outbreak of third wave of Covid 19 in India, asked him to halt all the air services with Singapore and prioritise vaccination for children.
The warning came after the National capital, Delhi started showing gradual signs of recovery as the number of positive cases drastically reduced. Empty hospital beds in hospitals are a sign of the positive change.
In response to Kejriwal’s tweet, the foreign Minister of Singapore, Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted back quite sharply saying that there was no truth in the dangerous Singapore variant about to cause danger in India. All the cases recorded in the past few weeks are of the B.1.617.2, which has originated in India.
The Foreign Minister responded severely in his tweet saying that the politician needs to stick to the facts and shared a detailed link showing the B.1.617.2 variant creating havoc in Singapore. He said that false accusations must be avoided and only facts have to be discussed.
Singapore has been imposing strict restrictions on its citizens to curb the growth of the virus and imposing that mask was compulsory. Activities which require “No Mask” have to be strictly avoided and social clusters are prohibited to stop the spread of the virus.
In India, the situation seems to be gradually improving with the number of positive cases reducing and the curve seems to be coming down. The National Capital which suffered the most has recovered considerably and it seems India is seeing light at the end of the tunnel with the oncoming of strict lockdowns and social distancing.
Well, We can only hope for a better situation and pray for a virus free world very soon !!!
