While there has been a marginal drop compared to yesterday, India once again detailed more than 20,000 Covid cases. With 20,551 new covid infections being written in a day. India’s tally of Covid-19 cases soared to 4,41,07,588. While the active cases decreases to 1,35,364, according to the Union Health Ministry report updated on Friday. The mortality toll lumped to 5,26,600 with 70 new deaths, the data updated at 8 am stated. The active cases constitute 0.31per cent of the total contamination. While the national Covid-19 recuperation rate was logged at 98.50 percent, the ministry said. A drop of 1,114 cases has been logged in the active Covid-19 caseload in a span of 24 hours.
India’s Covid-19 tally went past the 20-lakh mark on August 7, 2020, 30 lakh on August 23. 40 lakh on September 5 and 50 lakh on September 16. It surpassed 60 lakh on September 28, 70 lakh on October 11, and crossed 80 lakh on October 29. 90 lakh on November 20 and surpassed the one-crore mark on December 19. The country exceeded the grim milestone of two crore on May 4 and three crore on June 23 last year. It crossed the four-crore mark on January 25 this year.
Meanwhile, according to a large Dutch study published on Friday in The Lancet journal, one in eight adults who have been contaminated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus experience long-term indications due to Covid-19. The study provides one of the first comparisons of long-term indications after SARS-CoV-2 infection, called ‘long Covid’, with symptoms in an uninfected population, as well as those in individuals both pre- and post-Covid-19 infection.
The researchers discovered that several symptoms were new or more acute three to five months after having Covid-19, compared to symptoms before a diagnosis and to the control group, suggesting these symptoms can be imaged as the core symptoms of long Covid.
