New Delhi: India saw a single-day rise of 2,796 fatalities with Bihar carrying out a reconciliation exercise of its Covid data, pushing the country’s death toll to 4,73,326, while 8,895 new infections were reported, according to Union health ministry data updated on Sunday.

The daily rise in new coronavirus infections has remained below 50,000 for 161 consecutive days now. The active cases stand at 99,155, comprising 0.29 per cent of the total infections, the lowest since March 2020. The national COVID-19 recovery rate was recorded at 98.35 per cent, the health ministry said.

India on Saturday reported the fourth case of Omicron variant in the country. A 33-year-old person from Kalyan-Dombivli who recently returned from South Africa found positive for the Omicron variant of COVID19. This is the first case of the variant in Maharashtra and the fourth in the country.

This comes hours after a Gujarat man who returned from Zimbabwe has been found infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

The first two cases of Omicron strain were confirmed in two individuals in Karnataka. On Thursday, two cases of Omicron cases were detected in Karnataka — one 66-year old is a South African national who had left the country after testing negative, while the other is a local person — a doctor aged 46, with no travel history.
