The second wave of coronavirus gripped the country and caused large-scale devastation and deaths. While we aren't yet out of the clear, the latest numbers show a worrying trend.
According to the data shared by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), a downward trend of daily Covid infections has slowed down and there’s a slight but increase in the positivity rate.
The rate of decline of active cases has decreased from 5.23% on June 9 to 1.8% on July 7. On July 2 while daily positivity rates reached a low of 2.19%, it increases to 2.27% on July 7.
Though there’s a minimal increase, it is important to consider, given the anecdotal accounts of Covid-inappropriate behaviour from many places, especially tourist destinations.
A research report has predicted that India may witness the third wave of COVID-19 in mid-August 2021, raising the alarm bells for policymakers and citizens.
Having said that, the intensity or danger of a contagious wave is not something that can be predicted.
Meanwhile, India reported 43,393 new Covid cases, 44,459 recoveries, and 911 deaths in the last 24 hours.
