I've never grown okra. This looks like yellow vein mosaic virus. These is some good information on this fact sheet from The World Vegetable Center.

Given your other posts, I wouldn't entirely rule out a nutrient problem. In particular, if you see leaf yellowing on other plants, I'd consider a magnesium deficiency.

This looks like yellow vein mosaic disease. You can control the disease by collecting the infected leaves and burning them. Application of co3 or bevistin, cabentazim, fytolon would be helpful as well

  • Those are pretty heavy duty (aka agricultural grade) fungicides and unlikely to be available to a home owner
