Mumbai: After the decrease in the number of corona patients, all the restrictions have been lifted in Mumbai. While Mumbaikars have got some relief, there is now a worrying news as well.
Patients of two new variants of corona have been found in Mumbai. The lethal variants of Corona are the Kappa variant and the XE variant. These startling findings have come to the fore in the genome sequencing test conducted by the Municipal Corporation of Mumbai. On one hand, the government removed the restrictions in view of the shortage of Corona. Even masks have been made optional.
