As 2nd Wave Ebbs Further, 31 UP Districts become Covid-Free

Active Covid-19 caseload drops to 159; Recovery Rate climbs up to 98.8 percent

 

Lucknow: High recoveries and a low number of fresh Covid-19 cases have reduced the Active Covid Caseload in Uttar Pradesh to 159, while the percentage of active cases as against the total confirmed cases in the state remains at 0 percent.

The Active Covid-19 cases in the most populous state has been reduced by over a remarkable 99 percent from its peak capped at 3,10,783 cases earlier in the month of April.

On the contrary, states such as Kerala, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu having even less than half of UP’s population, account for a heavy Active Caseload of 1,41,211, 35,955 and 17,046, respectively.

In another significant development, the Active Covid-19 cases have declined to zero in as many as 31 districts. Whereas about 21 districts of the state are just left with a single active case each.

With emphasis on strict screening, proper treatment and aggressive vaccination, districts, namely, Amethi, Amroha, Baghpat, Ballia, Balrampur, Etah, Farrukhabad, Fatehpur, Ghazipur, Gonda, Hamirpur, Hapur, Hardoi, Hathras, Jalaun, Kanpur Dehat, Kanpur Nagar, Kasganj, Lakhimpur-Kheri, Lalitpur, Mahoba, Mainpuri, There is not a single patient of Kovid left in Mau, Moradabad, Muzaffarnagar, Rampur, Sant Kabir Nagar, Shravasti, Varanasi, Sitapur and Unnao have completely eliminated cases of coronavirus.

It is pertinent to note that apart from Uttar Pradesh, no other state provides data describing covid situation district-wise. In what comes as another big relief, none of the 75 districts in Uttar Pradesh have reported fresh cases of coronavirus infection in double-digits lately.

Signaling effective control on the spread of Covid-19, the state of Uttar Pradesh on Sunday recorded as many as 13 fresh cases. The Fresh cases have declined by more than 38,000 from its peak which was 38,055 on April 24. The state has also been able to restrict the daily Covid case-count below 50 for over 50 days in a row.

The lesser number of fresh cases, however, is not because Uttar Pradesh, like other states, has decreased COVID-19 testing. UP under its stringent T3 testing mechanism-’Trace, Test and Treat’ continues to expand the testing capacity across the state.

The last 24 hours saw a total of 173,377 tests being conducted. Uttar Pradesh has so far conducted over 7.91 Cr (7,91,30,216) cumulative tests.

Continuing its positive recovery trend, Uttar Pradesh also saw as many as 7 Covid-19 patients discharged, adding up to the recovery of 16,86,804 people so far.

Consequently, the daily test positivity rate (TPR) in Uttar Pradesh too has dipped to lower than 0.01 percent from a high of over 16.84 percent in April.

UP close to administering 11 crore Vaccine doses

Making a rapid stride towards elimination of coronavirus, with over 10,91,58,742 doses administered, Uttar Pradesh is leading the country’s vaccination drive at a war-footing.

In addition, the state has also achieved the landmark of administering the first dose of the covid-19 vaccine to over 59 percent of the eligible adult population. As many as 8,75,06,858 people have been inoculated with the first dose and over 2.16 crore people in the state have been fully vaccinated.
