Several states have managed to bring down the tally of fresh coronavirus cases even as Kerala, followed by Maharashtra (a distant second though) continued to contribute significantly to the nationwide figures. Among the other top states to have made major additions to the virus list are Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka. The country’s weekly tally has gone on an upward trend with fresh cases crossing the 30,000-mark. Kerala remained one of the worst-hit states now adding almost half of the total cases registered across the state. According to the latest figures shared of the health department, the southern state, however, registered a fall in fresh Covid-19 cases. However, it was still more than half of the nationwide tally of 30,773 cases.
Covid-19 fresh cases in Kerala are out of control.
The latest figures took the total affected in Kerala to 44,88,840 and the toll to 23,439. On Friday, the state had reported 23,260 cases. The state’s active caseload stood at 1,80,842. Also, the number of recoveries outnumbered fresh cases with 28000 cured of the viral disease. The state has decided to reopen schools from November 1. It will also withdraw the total lockdown being imposed on Sundays and night curfew between 10 pm and 6 am.
Maharashtra recorded 3400 new Covid-19 cases and 80 deaths taking the active case count to 47,919. The health department said around 3 lakh people are in home quarantine. However around 2000 people are still in institutional quarantine and 4000 patients discharged during the day. Meanwhile, Karnataka, another badly hit state, recorded around 1000 new cases and 14 deaths. However the Narendra Modi government has totally failed to tackle the second covid wave. We herein expect that the government would work effectively to curb the spread of the virus. India can not bear the pain of one more wave as we have already witnessed a deadly second wave.
