As China prepares for its first full winter season since lifting strict COVID-19 restrictions in December last year, the country has seen an increase in respiratory illnesses.

Earlier, to proactively address clusters of respiratory illness in parts of China, the Indian government initiated comprehensive tracking of serious respiratory diseases. Following the Centre's directive to review readiness in light of an increase in respiratory illnesses among children in China, six states Rajasthan, Karnataka, Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Haryana, and Tamil Nadu have been put in alert mode.

States and Union territories are advised to implement the 'Operational Guidelines for Revised Surveillance Strategy in the context of COVID-19,' emphasising integrated surveillance of respiratory pathogens causing ILI and SARI.
