No fresh cases of Covid 19 were reported from as many as 69 districts out of the 75 in the span of the last 24 hours in Uttar Pradesh.
Out of over 1.46 lakh samples tested, as many as 10 tested positive for coronavirus. The fresh cases have declined by more than 99 percent from their peak which was 38,055 on April 24.
Where major other states have been witnessing a greater surge of fresh Covid-19 infections (daily cases ranging from 15,000-2,000), Uttar Pradesh has restricted the daily-case count below 50 for over three consecutive months.
Consequently, the Test Positivity Rate (TPR), which shows the levels of infection among people – has decreased to less than 0.01 percent, the lowest in the country.
As Covid recovery rate in Uttar Pradesh steadily follows an upward graph, the state on Monday recorded the recovery rate at a remarkable 98.7 percent. As many as 7 patients recovered in the span of the last 24 hours in the state.
High recoveries and a low number of new Covid-19 cases have subsided the active Covid caseload in Uttar Pradesh to 137, while the percentage of active cases as against the total confirmed cases is 0 percent.
The active caseload has been brought down by over a remarkable 99 percent from its peak capped at 3,10,783 cases on April 30.
Even as Uttar Pradesh’s active cases continue to hover around the 100 mark, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has directed officials to ensure that everyone coming to UP from other states and abroad is tested for Covid-19. This includes ensuring that those coming especially from abroad or states reporting a higher surge of cases like Kerala and Maharashtra are carrying negative Covid-19 reports.
Proactive measures such as the aggressive ‘Trace, Test & Treat’ and prevention through vaccination and Partial Corona Curfews to eradicate the pandemic, the UP government has left no stone unturned to minimise its devastating impact.
Uttar Pradesh has given out over 16.83 crore vaccine doses so far and that is no small achievement. The impressive pace of COVID vaccination has made Uttar Pradesh ‘the top state’ with the largest population in the country.
In addition, the state has also achieved the landmark of administering the first dose of the covid-19 vaccine to over 77.71 percent of the eligible adult population. Over 5.35 crore people in the state have been fully vaccinated.
UP has set an example in front of other states of the country, besides controlling the infection in a short time. On the other hand, Maharashtra lags with 11.8 crore doses delivered so far.
