India Covid-19 Updates: 109 new cases, total caseload 4.47cr

New Delhi: India has logged 109 new covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, with active cases falling to 1,781, the union health ministry data on Thursday, February 9, showed. 

Covid-19 cases are declining across the country with daily and weekly positivity recorded at 0.08%. The total number of cases has reached 4.47 crore, and the related deaths stood at 530,748 since the onset of covid pandemic.

Kerala has 1218 active cases, compared to Karnataka's 108 reported active cases. There are 83 active cases in Maharashtra, 88 in Odisha, 10 in Rajasthan, 36 in Tamil Nadu, 16 in Uttar Pradesh, and 43 in West Bengal.
With a current recovery rate of 98.81%, about 4,41,51,219 individuals have recovered from the virus.

Scientists predict that Omicron and its sub-lineages won't affect India due to a significant number of populations having already been exposed to the virus and vaccinated due to the quick fall in the trajectory of covid infections. Scientists claim that Indians have created a hybrid form of immunity (due to vaccination and natural infection). However, they advise wearing masks in crowded areas and finishing any unfinished immunization doses.

The government has intensified covid readiness measures as a result of the high number of cases currently being reported in China and other nations. The Department of Biotechnology (DBT) is in charge of INSACOG, and the government has instructed it to maintain a careful eye on the covid situation in the nation and to keep doing ongoing genome sequencing to look for any new variant.

Over 1,41,248 tests have been performed in the nation in the previous 24 hours, bringing the trajectory of covid testing to 91.67 crore thus far.

More than 220.61 crore vaccine doses have now been given to people nationwide as part of the COVID vaccination campaign. Approximately 1,13,507 vaccination doses were given out in the last 24 hours.

People returning from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, and South Korea are subject to RT-PCR testing, and the government has made it mandatory for travellers from the six nations where 72-hour previous RT-PCR testing is required to complete "Air Suvidha" forms.
