India reported 90,928 fresh COVID-19 cases in the last 24 hours, 56 percent higher than yesterday’s 58,097 cases. The country has 2,630 cases of the Omicron variant – the most in Maharashtra with 797 cases, followed by Delhi with 465 cases.
The fast-spreading Omicron variation has spread to 26 states in India. A 73-year-old man in Rajasthan has become the principal detailed setback due to the new Covid strain. The man was completely vaccinated and had no critical contact and travel history, as indicated by the government.
The weekly positivity rate is 3.47 percent; the everyday energy rate is 6.43 percent. Inspiration rate is the level of all Covid tests that are really sure. It will be high on the off chance that the quantity of positive tests is high or then again assuming the number of absolute tests is low.
The recovery rate is currently at 97.81 percent. No less than 19,206 people have recovered. The complete number of people who have recovered is 3,43,41,009. Active cases account for less than 1 percent of total cases, currently at 0.81 percent. The active caseload stands at 2,85,401.
As many as 325 people have passed on from Covid during the period for which information for the most recent Health Ministry figures was collected. This includes 258 deaths in Kerala in the last few months, added based on pending appeals after the last Supreme Court guidelines.
A few states have announced restrictions like night check-in time as Covid cases keep on rising.
Maharashtra added 26,538 new cases to India’s huge spike, trailed by West Bengal, which revealed 14,022 infections in a day.
The number of fresh Covid cases in Delhi nearly doubled within the last 24 hours, shooting up from 5481 to 10,665 in the biggest single-day spike since May 12. Eight deaths were also recorded — the highest since June 26.
Those in the 15-18 age group are being vaccinated at this point. The number of fresh Covid cases in Delhi nearly doubled within the last 24 hours, shooting up from 5481 to 10,665 in the biggest single-day spike since May 12. Eight deaths were also recorded — the highest since June 26.
The ‘preparatory’ dose – announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi last month after sustained demand for vaccine boosters in the light of the Omicron threat – is, for now, only available for frontline and healthcare workers, and those over 60 with co-morbidities, starting January 10. There will be no mix-and-match of vaccines for those eligible to get a ‘precautionary’ third dose, Dr VK Paul, the head of India’s Covid task force, said.
Data has shown that the average daily rise of Covid this time is almost 21 per cent faster than during the second wave in March-April. A seven-day moving average showed that the cases have shot up from 56 to 199. Today’s figures are likely to push the rate further north.
