After recording more than 40,000 cases for the past 5 days, India Reported 30,549 new Covid 19 cases in the last 24 hours, which is significantly lower than the previous day figure.

38,887 patients recovered during the last 24 hours. With this, the recovery rate is currently at 97.38%.

It is not just Kerala and its neighbouring states where Covid-19 infections have been rising over the past few days. As many as 13 states recorded an increase in cases last week, apart from Tamil Nadu which saw no change, although absolute numbers remained low at most places.

The surge, however, is mainly restricted to Kerala and, to a much lesser degree, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. The state of Kerala accounted for nearly half of all new cases in the country.

With the recent uptick in Covid cases, the focus is again on whether states are testing enough to detect cases well in time. Data shows that Kerala, which is in the news for reporting the highest number of cases, is also the leader in testing rates among larger states with a seven-day average of 4,587 tests per million.

IIT researchers who predicted a nearly accurate peak of the Covid-19 second wave believe that the third wave, if at all it comes, may not be as scary as the second one as long as no new mutant which may pass through all kinds of immunity arrives on the scene.
