Coronavirus Third Wave India July 22 Highlights, Coronavirus Statistics India News Highlights: India vaccine woes refuse to go anytime soon. Despite tall claims by the Narendra Modi government and regular updates showing cumulative Covid jabs running into crores, the daily shots have tanked to a new low. The latest Cowin data shows that India managed to vaccinate somewhere around 23 lakh on July 21st. This is an extremely worrisome status. In its affidavit, the Centre has already told the Supreme Court that it has a target of vaccinating India’s entire adult population against coronavirus by December this year. With the current pace, this looks very unrealistic unless some stringent measures are not taken. The daily vaccination rate plummets even as the Centre maintains that there are around 3 crore unutilized doses still available with the states.

India on Thursday reported over 40,000 new Covid-19 infections for the second day running. The latest government data says that 41,383 fresh coronavirus cases were reported in the last 24 hours. The fatalities tally also witnessed a slump as there was no backlog reconciled by any state. The updated health bulletin says that 507 Indians lost their lives due to Covid. At present, India’s recovery rate is 97.35 per cent. The number of active cases has dropped to 4,09,394. The daily positivity rate of 2.41 per cent has been registered, the official data says. India’s positivity rate has stayed below 3 per cent in the last month. This is a good sign for the nation.

    A petition was filed in a court here on Thursday with a prayer to order lodging of FIR against Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandviya for the "hurt" caused by the Centre's assertion that no deaths took place because of oxygen shortage during the COVID-19 pandemic. The petition was filed before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Muzaffarpur, by local activist Tamanna Hashmi, a serial litigant who describes himself as a "social activist with social commitment". Hashmi, who has often been in the news for coming up with petitions against high-profile politicians, has also sought that Bharati Pravin Pawar, who is the Union minister of state for health and family welfare, be also be named in the FIR alongside her boss.

    In reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, Pawar who is a qualified doctor herself, said that no deaths due to lack of oxygen were "specifically reported" by states and union territories during the second Covid-19 wave that hit the country. Hashmi has claimed that he was "hurt" as a result of the statement and invoked IPC sections 153 and 153 A (promoting enmity, with intention to cause riot) besides 295 and 295 A (insult to religious feelings). The matter has been listed for hearing on July 28. (PTI)

    Coronavirus Live Tracker: For South Sudan mothers, COVID-19 shook a fragile foundation

    Paska Itwari Beda knows hunger all too well. The young mother of five children ‘ all under age 10 ‘ sometimes survives on one bowl of porridge a day, and her entire family is lucky to scrape together a single daily meal, even with much of the money Beda makes cleaning offices going toward food. She goes to bed hungry in hopes her children won't have to work or beg like many others in South Sudan, a country only a decade old and already ripped apart by civil war. But the pandemic scares Beda in ways that even hunger doesn't. In South Sudan, lives are built and teeter on the edge of uncertainty. A peace deal to end the civil war lags far behind schedule. Violence erupts between ethnic groups. Corruption is widespread. Hunger haunts more than half the population of 12 million people. And even the land itself doesn't guarantee solid footing, as climate change sparks flooding in swaths of the country. - AP

    Coronavirus Live Tracker: Death rates soar in Southeast Asia as virus wave spreads

    Indonesia has converted nearly its entire oxygen production to medical use just to meet the demand from COVID-19 patients struggling to breathe. Overflowing hospitals in Malaysia had to resort to treating patients on the floor. And in Myanmar's largest city, graveyard workers have been laboring day and night to keep up with the grim demand for new cremations and burials. Images of bodies burning in open-air pyres during the peak of the pandemic in India horrified the world in May, but in the last two weeks the three Southeast Asian nations have now all surpassed India's peak per capita death rate as a new coronavirus wave, fueled by the virulent delta variant, tightens its grip on the region. The deaths have followed record numbers of new cases being reported in countries across the region which have left health care systems struggling to cope and governments scrambling to implement new restrictions to try to slow the spread. - AP

    Coronavirus Live Tracker:Given robust system of reporting, missing out on Covid deaths unlikely: Govt

    Refuting media reports that alleged India's COVID-19 death toll was "vastly undercounted", the government on Thursday said the reports assume that all excess mortality figures are Covid deaths, which is not based on facts and totally fallacious. Given the robust and statute-based death registration system in India, while some cases could go undetected as per the principles of infectious disease and its management, missing out on the deaths is unlikely, the Union Health Ministry said. There have been some recent media reports alleging that India's toll of excess deaths during the pandemic could be in millions, terming the official COVID-19 death toll "vastly undercounted", the ministry said in a statement. In these news reports, quoting findings from some recent studies, the US and European countries' age-specific infection fatality rates have been used to calculate excess deaths in India based on the sero-positivity. - PTI

    Coronavirus Live Tracker: Claim of 'no deaths due to lack of oxygen' very unfortunate and sad: Mayawati

    BSP president Mayawati on Thursday said the claim of "no deaths due to lack of oxygen" during the COVID-19 second wave was very unfortunate and sad, and added that such statements were creating a distrust among people of the government's ability to tackle any future wave. In a series of tweets, the BSP leader said, "Due to lack of oxygen, especially in the second wave of corona, there were panic and deaths in India. To deal with it, the central government even had to take foreign help and this is not hidden from anyone. Yet it is very unfortunate and sad to claim that there have been no deaths due to lack of oxygen." "Such false statements are also creating a distrust of the Centre among the people as to what will happen if the third wave of corona strikes. The priority of the central and state governments should be 100 per cent towards the people and less towards political and government interests." - PTI
