The CM said that Yoga can help people increase immunity and can also be beneficial during post-Covid complications.

“Yoga helps in cultivating high immunity and keeping people mentally and physically healthy. It plays an important role in dealing with post-Covid complications for those who faced an adverse infection,” he said.
