Bengaluru Urban

: Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA
India still among the lowest in terms cases or deaths per million population globally. Among the larger population countries, we still remain among the lowest in terms of cases per million population: Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA
#COVID19 cases had grown in mid-Sept, after which it had continuously declined and then started climbing up from the 1st week of April

In mid-Sept, the country was also reporting max no. of deaths (a daily average of 1089), followed by a continuous decline and then again a rise
The states of maximum concern still remains #Maharashtra, #Punjab & #Chhattisgarh

#Maharashtra for its share of the total no. of cases & deaths nationally

#Punjab and #Chhattisgarh for their no. of deaths. Given their population, their death nos. are a cause for extreme concern
#COVID19 in #Maharashtra:

Risen from an avg of 3000 in Feb 2nd week to more than 44,000 at present

Avg daily deaths has also gone up from 32 to 250

Accounts for 58% of all active cases & 34% of all COVID-related deaths in the country - it is a cause for concern

#COVID19 in #Maharashtra:

The share of #RTPCR tests have decreased in the last few weeks - it went down from around 71% in March 1st week to only about 60% of total testing in the last week

We advise states to keep the share of RT-PCR to 70% or above

- Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA
Of late, we have advised #Maharashtra to use mobile testing labs in the geographically difficult terrains. @ICMRDELHI is assisting the #Maharashtra Govt. in this work: Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA

#COVID19 in #Maharashtra: The weekly positivity rate had declined to 6% towards the beginning of February and has now increased to 24% in the last week. This is also a cause for concern. We need to work more strictly in matters of isolating people where it's needed- @MoHFW_INDIA
We have deployed 50 high-level multi-disciplinary public health teams in 30 #Maharashtra districts, 11 #Chhattisgarh districts and 9 #Punjab districts. They (having a public health specialist and a clinician) will help in surveillance, control & containment measures: @MoHFW_INDIA
#LargestVaccineDrive: 8.31 crore #vaccine doses administered till today morning

5.35 crore people aged 45 or above #vaccinated

89.6 lakh #healthcareworkers and 97.28 lakh #frontline workers also #vaccinated
Following all scientific rigours, more than 8 crore #vaccine doses have been administered in the country in less than 80 days, which has been made possible by a close coordination between the Centre and State Governments: Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA
When such a #vaccination is organized during a pandemic, the basic aim is to reduce deaths. The other aim is to protect your healthcare system. All over the world, the aim is to vaccinate those who need it, to save the vulnerable population: Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA
More than 81 lakh people have been administered the first dose of #vaccine and more than 8 lakh have received their second dose also.

Gujarat, Rajasthan, UP, West Bengal, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Kerala have performed well in the #vaccination drive: Secretary, @MoHFW_INDIA
The whole country has to fight against the #pandemic with all its power. We have to use our old tools of COVID Appropriate Behaviour, Containment, Testing, Preparing Hospitals and, also, Vaccination all over, and esp. in the districts where the situation is grim: Dr. V.K.Paul
The coming 4 weeks is very critical in the fight against #COVID19. A positive wave of Jan Bhagidaari is very important to control the second wave of the pandemic

- Dr. V.K. Paul, Member (Health), @NITIAayog

'Re-Infection' has been given a new meaning that has been accepted allover the world, where the 1st test should be positive, then a test should be negative and then again, a test should be positive within 102 days. Earlier, the time interval was taken as 86 days: DG, @ICMRDELHI
