Even though the second wave of the corona has been controlled in India, but there is also a fact that due to the continuous increase in cases in some states of the country, the concern of the Center has also increased. According to the data of the Union Health Ministry, the states where cases are increasing are Kerala (11414 new cases), Maharashtra (8815 new cases), Tamil Nadu (3565 new cases), Andhra Pradesh (3461 new cases), Karnataka (3342 new cases). , Assam (2946 new cases), Odisha (2896 new cases), West Bengal (1490 new cases), and Telangana (993 new cases).


Not only have new cases increased here, but the positivity rate has also been high. Given this, the Center has written a letter to Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Kerala, Assam, Meghalaya, Tripura, Sikkim, and Odisha, warning them about this. Let us tell you that due to the increasing cases in some of these states, the Center had sent its teams in early July itself.


In this letter written on behalf of Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan, advice and guidelines have also been given to these states for the prevention of the epidemic. In this, expressing concern over the increasing cases in these states, it has been said that the positivity rate here is more than 10 percent. In this letter written by the Center, information has also been given about the increased cases between June 28 and July 4. Through this letter, the Center has urged these states to expedite the vaccination. The Center says that for this, the states should increase the number of vaccination centers. Along with this, the states have been instructed to increase these centers in the Containment Zone as well.


Let us tell you that from the new cases of corona that came out during July 6-7, it has been found that for the first time in about 55 days, the number of people recovering from corona has been less than the number of new cases. Let us also tell you here that within the last 111 days, the lowest number of cases were reported on 6 July. On this day 34,703 new cases were reported in the country. Not only this, after July 6, the number of active cases in the country has also increased.

As far as the increasing cases in some states are concerned, experts believe that the virus is probably reaching from the city to the rural area. Professor Dr. Jugal Kishore of Safdarjung Medical College says that during the second wave, most people in the cities have been affected by it. Therefore, they will not get re-infection until and unless they are infected with another variant. They also say that apart from the possibility of increasing cases in rural areas, there is also an apprehension that perhaps a new variant has come to the fore, which has not been discovered yet.
