While the Indian subcontinent is crippled by COVID-19, data from Gujarat, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Telangana, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh indicated a decrease in new coronavirus cases.
The data showed that the new cases dropped to 3,92,488 and 3,68,147 on May 1 and May 2 after crossing 4 lakhs cases on April 30. With the current data, the active Indian COVD-19 cases totaled a disturbing 34,13,642.
12 districts in Maharashtra, 4 districts of Chhattisgarh, 3 districts in the Ladakh region, and one district in Telangana have shown signs of improvement. However, the Health Ministry has adopted a cautiously optimistic stance by urging these states to continue the containment measures to maintain this dip.
Lav Agarwal, Union Health Ministry Joint Secretary, said, “It is important to have continued efforts of containment at district and state level so that we can preserve these gains and reduce cases further.”
The Joint Secretary further cautioned that states should not ignore the mortalities, and to address some areas of concern. Matching his statement are rising caseloads from Bihar, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, and Karnataka witnessing increasing COVID-19 infections.
However, the battle with COVD-19 is far from over as 12 states have over 1 lakh coronavirus cases, and seven states have a caseload in the range of 50,000 to 1 lakh.
