Indicating control over the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, 9 positive cases were reported from 6 districts in the span of the last 24 hours in Uttar Pradesh.
The Fresh cases have declined by more than 99 percent from their peak which was 38,055 on April 24. The lesser number of fresh cases, however, is not because Uttar Pradesh, like other states, has decreased COVID testing. The Yogi Adityanath- led state under its stringent T3 testing mechanism- ’Trace, Test and Treat’ conducted more than 1.40 Lakh Covid tests in the last 24 hours.
While 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 Tuesday recorded the Recovery Rate at a remarkable 98.7 percent. As many as 12 patients recovered in the span of the last 24 hours in the state.
– Active cases decline to 132
High recoveries and a low number of new Covid-19 cases have subsided the Active Covid Caseload in Uttar Pradesh to 132, 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.
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.
As many as 38 districts, have subsided the fresh and active covid-19 cases to zero, signalling complete elimination of coronavirus from over 50 percent of the state.
