New Delhi:
India’s daily Coved Graph today saw a worrying upward trend as the country added 3.17 million Coved cases – a new high in the third wave – bringing the number to 3.82 million. Globally, India is the second most affected country after the United States.

Here are the top 10 coronavirus updates in India:

  1. The total number of highly contagious Omicron variants reached 8,209 and 29 states reported new strains. Maharashtra reported 1,738 cases, the highest in the country, followed by West Bengal, where 1,672 people were infected by Omicron.

  2. Active cases now account for 5.03 percent of total infections, with the national COVID-19 recovery rate down to 93.69 percent. According to the Ministry of Health, which was updated this morning, an increase of 93,051 cases has been recorded in the active COVID-19 caseload in 24 hours.

  3. The daily positivity rate was recorded at 16.41 percent and the weekly positivity rate was recorded at 16.06 percent. The growing dose administered so far in the country under the nationwide vaccination drive has exceeded 159.67 crore, the ministry said.

  4. Maharashtra, one of the states most affected by the Kovid epidemic, recorded 43,697 new coronavirus infections, 10 per cent more than the previous day, including 214 Omicron infections, and 49 deaths. The new Omicron case brings the number of victims of this strain to 1,860.

  5. Delhi has reported 13,785 new coward cases and 35 deaths in the last 24 hours. According to the Delhi government’s health bulletin, the active number of Kovid patients in the city has reached 75,282. Of these, 58,501 patients were admitted to home isolation and 2,624 to hospitals.

  6. According to the Ministry of Health, 491 people have died in Kovid in the last 24 hours. Of these, 134 have died in Kerala in the last few months, added on the basis of pending appeals following the final directions of the Supreme Court. More than 10 deaths were reported in 13 states.

  7. Authorities say fewer hospitalizations and deaths have occurred than the Omicron Delta variant, which killed thousands of people last year.

  8. About 70% of the eligible population has received the two primary vaccines and a booster campaign is underway for health workers and at-risk populations. But some state reports suggest that those who have not been vaccinated or have not been fully vaccinated account for more than 90% of intensive care patients.

  9. The Supreme Court on Wednesday slammed the Andhra Pradesh and Bihar governments and grilled others, including Kerala, for failing or delaying compensation to the families of those killed in Kovid. “It is very unfortunate that despite the instructions before the compensation is paid … the order is issued again and again,” the court said.

  10. The coronavirus has killed at least 5,480,481 people since the outbreak began in China in December 2019, the news agency AFP reported.
