While experts have suggested ways to take care of your mental health amid this ongoing health crisis, a new survey has found that things may be looking up a bit. According to Deloitte’s Global Consumer Tracker survey, Indian consumers may be displaying signs of reduced anxiety as nationwide vaccination coverage increases.
