ON THE WEB, 30 January 2022
India is seeing signs of COVID-19 infections slowing down in some parts of the country, but cases are still surging in other parts.
In the current third wave of the pandemic, the newly dominant Omicron variant has infected more people than the Delta variant did in the second wave last year.
Amid the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, India recorded 2.34 lakh fresh covid cases on 30 January 2022, taking the total to 4.10 crore till now. As many as 893 people have died of Covid during the past 24 hours, out of the total 4,94 lakh fatalities due to COVID-19 so far.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned that the coronavirus pandemic is not over yet. The virus has killed over 54 lakh people since the outbreak emerged in China in December 2019.
As uncertainty continues around the battle against Covid, and its variants continue with no end in sight, we also remain uncertain about holding a pageant in these difficult times.
We will announce on this website and our social media pages when organising a pageant becomes possible. Please keep checking with us from time to time.
I wish you health and happiness in the meantime.
