In the wake of rising coronavirus cases in the country, several states of the Indian subcontinent have decided on imposing more stringent measures to keep the spread of infection in check and prevent things from taking on an alarming dimension. Arvind Kejriwal’s government in Delhi has imposed night curfew with immediate effect in order to contain the spread of the deadly virus. It will be effective from 10pm in the night to 5am next morning till April 30.

The national capital of Delhi, which is experiencing the fourth wave of the lethal coronavirus infection, has recorded 3,548 new cases of Covid-19 along with 2,936 recoveries from the infection and 15 deaths on Monday. These figures have taken the total number of coronavirus cases in Delhi to 6,79,962, which includes 14,589 active covid cases.

India had logged over 1 lakh fresh Covid-19 cases in one day, for the first time since the onset of the dangerous pandemic. This uncontrolled surge in covid cases has led the Central government to convene an emergency meeting with heads of the states and health ministers over the upcoming days in order to mull over the situation and decide on a feasible solution.

With 96,982 new cases of Covid-19 recorded yesterday, the country’s total case load goes over 1.26 crore. According to data from the Union Health Ministry, there were also 50,143 discharges and 446 deaths in the span of the last 24 hours.

Total covid cases: 1, 26, 86,049

Total recoveries: 1,17,32,279

Active covid cases: 7, 88,223

Death toll from covid: 1, 65,547

Total vaccination: 8,31,10,926

As per Serum Institute of India CEO Adar Poonawalla, the Covishield vaccine that has been developed by Oxford University goes up in effectiveness by up to 90 per cent, if the two doses of the vaccine are given two to three months apart.

A recent study conducted by the Lancet also declared that if the two doses of the coronavirus vaccine that is developed by AstraZeneca Company in collaboration with the Oxford University is separated by about a month, then its efficacy becomes nearly 70 per cent.

50 high level multi-disciplinary public health teams have been rushed to multiple districts across the states of Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh and Punjab by the Central government. This is in response to the surge in Covid-19 cases in these states. The teams will be expected to assist the state health department and local authorities in Covid-19 surveillance, control and containment measures, as per the facts presented by the Health Ministry.
