Coronavirus Case and Fatality Rate in India, Coronavirus Third Wave Updates, Covid tally August 24 updates: India’s Covid tally is consistent with its current trend of low daily caseload. In the last 24 hours, India detected 25,467 new Covid-19 infections. Though Tuesday’s caseload is slightly higher than Monday, the fresh cases remain below 30,000-mark for the second consecutive day. In terms of Covid fatalities, 354 citizens lost their lives due to various complications. The national recovery rate has also improved on Tuesday, the daily health bulletin said. India’s current recovery stands at 97.68 per cent, which is the highest that the nation witnessed since March last year. The active cases also remain much below the 4-lakh mark. At present, the country has around 3.2 lakh active Covid cases, the government data says.
While the data may show a consistent decline in overall Covid numbers, the Centre has once again written to states to make sure that the local curbs are in place to avoid any corona cluster or outbreak during the festive season. The cumulative numbers show that cases are declining even in surge states such as Kerala and Maharashtra. However, the Centre’s latest communication highlights the unpredictable nature of the virus. One important point to remember right now is that it was around this time last year when the Indian scientists had identified the Delta variant of the coronavirus. So it is very critical to maintaining the downward trajectory of the corona tally. Because one case can lead to a fresh outbreak or worse can mutate into a new, far more transmissible variant of the novel coronavirus.
