Covid-19 India Update: Maharashtra Records Highest Omicron Cases, Tally Mounts To 23

President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr Anthony Fauci has said that while the Omicron variant is rapidly spreading throughout the USA, early indications suggest it may be less dangerous than Delta, which continues to drive a surge of hospitalizations.

The daily rise in new coronavirus infections in India has been recorded below 10,000 for 11 straight days and less than 50,000 for 163 consecutive days now. 10,004 patients recovered during the last 24 hours. With this the recovery rate currently stands at 98.36%. The daily positivity rate reaches at 0.63%, less than 2% for the last 64 days.

India’s Active Caseload currently stands at 95,014. Active cases now constitute less than 1% of total cases, currently at 0.27% which is the lowest since March 2020.
Relatively, the two most affected states recording maximum Covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours are Kerala and Maharashtra. Kerala reported 4,450 new Covid-19 cases and 161 deaths in the last 24 hours. Maharashtra reported 518 new Covid-19 cases, 811 recoveries and 5 deaths in the last 24 hours.

Two more cases of the new Omicron variant of coronavirus have been confirmed in Maharashtra, taking the total number of the cases to 10 in the state. Amid the Omicron scare, Kalyan Dombivali Municipal Corporation chief has said that 109 out of 295 recent foreign returnees to the township in Thane district were untraceable currently.

In a bid to ramp up the vaccination process, India has administered the cumulative figure of 128.76 crore vaccine doses.

Union health minister Mansukh Mandaviya has said that over 85% of the eligible population has been inoculated with first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.

President Joe Biden’s chief medical adviser, Dr Anthony Fauci has said that while the Omicron variant is rapidly spreading throughout the USA, early indications suggest it may be less dangerous than Delta, which continues to drive a surge of hospitalizations.

Concerns are now being raised regarding the transmissibility of the new Covid-19 variant Omicron as two fully vaccinated travelers got infected who were living across the hallway of a Hong Kong quarantine hotel. Apparently, the CCTV footage showed that neither the person left their room nor had any contact. The researchers believe that leaving airborne transmission when respective doors were opened for food collection or Covid-19 testing, the most probable mode of spread.
