UPDATE: Over 10,500 New Covid Cases In Last 24 Hours

Date:

New Delhi: A total of 10,753 new Covid-19 cases recorded in the last 24 hours in the country, marking a marginal dip from Friday’s count of 11,109 cases, as per the daily bulletin released by the Union Health Ministry.

The active caseload stood at 53,720 on Saturday, which is 0.12% of the total cases.

According to the health ministry bulletin, the country witnessed 6,628 recoveries in the last 24 hours, with total recoveries of 4,42,23,211. The current recovery rate stood at 98.69%. The daily positivity rate stood at 6.68%, while the weekly positivity rate was at 4.49%.

With 397 doses administered in the last 24 hours, a total of 220.66 crore vaccine doses have been administered so far under the nationwide vaccination drive.

The bulletin further states that with 1,58,625 Coronavirus tests conducted in the last 24 hours, the total number of tests conducted so far stood at 92.38 crore.

Medical experts have warned that the new XBB1.16 variant is able to evade the immune system of the people and the next four weeks are very crucial.

“Covid-19 in India is moving towards the endemic stage. Covid will rise for the next 10 days, but cases will start reducing. Though cases are increasing, hospitalisation remains low,” an official told ANI on Wednesday.

Amidst a gradual spike in Covid-19 cases in several states, mock drills were undertaken on April 10 and 11 in a total of 33,685 health facilities, including 28,050 government facilities and 5,635 private health facilities.

Earlier this month, Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud said lawyers were free to appear virtually in court in the wake of the rising number of Covid cases. “Lawyers can use hybrid mode. If you choose to appear online, we will hear you,” said the CJI.

The Supreme Court had reverted to the physical hearing mode of adjudication of cases from April 4, 2022, after taking into account the low infection rate and the number of Covid cases in Delhi and across the country.
