Tuesday, 13th October 2020

India’s count of the coronavirus affected people has reached 71,75,881, with 8,38,729 active cases and 1,09,856 people have been reported dead because of it. As per reports from the ministry of health, there have been 706 deaths reported in the past 24 hours. There also have been 62,27,296 cases of cures, discharges and migrations.


India has been showing a trend of declining average daily cases since the last 5 weeks as per a social media update by MoH.

The Arogya Setu app has been downloaded by almost 150 million users and this has greatly aided public health departments to single out areas that need more testing in a targeted way.


Russia has recorded a new daily spike in the number of positive Covid-19 cases with 13,868 cases on Tuesday. Their total number of cases now stands at 1,326,178.


As per findings from a new research that were released earlier this week, the possibility of being afflicted by the coronavirus more than once, cannot be ruled out. Moreover, the second time may bring about more severe symptoms than the first as per the study.


Similar studies have been published in the US as well where The Lancet Infectious Diseases journal has come up with the theory after having followed through the country’s first case of reinfection, that being infected once by the potentially deadly virus does not necessarily guarantee future immunity.


A new study also suggests that mothers infected with the virus are not likely to pass it on to their newborns even if breastfeeding and thus extreme steps such as isolating the mother may not necessarily be required. Researchers assure mothers-to-be that maintaining a basic sense of hygiene such as wearing a mask and engaging in breast and hand hygiene when holding/feeding the baby, can keep them protected.


Although majority of the reported coronavirus cases have been known to have been contracted indoors, experts still maintain that there is also a risk of transmission outside and hence it makes sense to continue wearing masks when outdoors.
