Some members of the apostolic sect have, however, continued to conduct services in violation of Covid-19 regulations.

This is happening when the country is grappling with the third wave of the coronavirus.

New infections and deaths have been on the rise for over a month with authorities blaming complacency and the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus that was first detected in India.
