The government data says that 290 people died due to coronavirus infection and related ailments in the country in a span of one day. The total active cases in India have gone down below the critical 4-lakh mark. The health bulletin says that currently, India has 3,92,864 active cases.

More people recovered from the novel coronavirus infection in comparison with the new cases. The health ministry information states that 42,942 people were cured of the viral infection in the last 24 hours. After the 1 crore+ jabs on September 6th, the Centre says that over 5 crore doses are still available with the states. Nearly 80 lakh doses are in the process of being sent to the states and UTs.

January 30, 2020 – India got its first confirmed Covid cases when a Thrissur student studying in Wuhan tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Since then, the Kerala model has received both bouquets and brickbats. At present, Kerala accounts for more than half of the total cases reported in India. Another state that is seeing a steady surge is Maharashtra. These two states together report around 80 per cent of the total Covid-19 infections in India.
Some health experts say that the reason for such high cases is the high level of testing. Others believe that this is the third wave everyone had predicted. Maharashtra is also taking notes from this situation. Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray has said that society, especially political parties must refrain from organizing events that attract huge crowds. In about a week’s time, the state will see the beginning of the Ganpati festival. At a time when Mumbai is back in the top 5 of Maharashtra’s Covid tally, it would be crucial for the local officials to see how the situation is handled.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that in the coming days, India would see 1.25 crore Covid jabs per day. In the month of August, there were two days that saw over 1 crore corona vaccine doses being administered. On September 6, i.e yesterday, the CoWin data says that over 1.13 crore people were vaccinated in the country. With the December deadline nearing, the 1.25 crore jabs per day is not just wishful thinking but the need of the hour.
