Coronavirus Third Wave India Live Update, Coronavirus Statistics India Live News: The Covid-19 crisis in India is improving. Daily cases have fallen sharply from the peak of the second wave during April and May. The country has been reporting below 50,000 points since June 21. On Tuesday, India saw 29,689 new coronavirus infections, the lowest single-day rise since March 17. Active cases also dropped below 4 lakh after 124 days. However, a “cause for concern” is that 22 districts across seven states are witnessing an uptrend in daily Covid-19 cases, which might indicate that the second wave of coronavirus is not over yet in the country.
Out of these 22 districts, seven are from Kerala, and two are from Maharashtra, with the rest spread across the Northeast. Kerala yesterday reported 22,129 new cases, taking its infection caseload to 33,05,245. The Test Positivity Rate in the state also increased to more than 12 percent. “There are 22 districts in the country where an increasing trend in cases has been noted… An increase has been seen during the last four weeks,” Lav Agarwal, Joint Secretary, Health, said at a press conference yesterday. “This increase is a cause for concern on which we continue to hold discussions with states,” he said. “We are in constant discussion with states on how we should focus on containment efforts, early detection so that the number of cases can be reduced,” he added. He urged people to follow Covid’s appropriate behavior.
