Indore Sees Dip In Fresh COVID-19 Cases, Over 1000 Corona-Free Areas
Corona has caused an upheaval everywhere around the world. Most countries are still in its grip with some suffering more than others; India being one of them. With a daily surge in the COVID-19 cases, the pandemic is still here and going strong. But amidst this festive season, there’s some good news too!
For the first time in weeks, since the initial outbreak, around 1000 areas in the city have declared zero active cases. There’s been a decline in the number of new positive cases and the city has witnessed an increase of about 50% in areas with zero active cases in the last three weeks. These statistics were reported in a survey conducted by the COVID care and command centre in the city. The analysis shows that on 14th October, there were 692 areas without any active cases which have since increased to 1036 on 8th November, signalling the city’s recovery against the global pandemic.
Regarding the matter, Dr Anil Dongre, district tracing in-charge said, “The district has now over 1000 areas without any active cases implying these are the areas without any active cases implying these are the areas haven’t reported any new cases for the last couple of weeks.” According to him, the reason for this decline is that since the initial wave of the outbreak, these areas reported a high number of cases, but later, the spread of viruses became a problem because of less availability of fresh bodies in the area.
He warned everyone to stay cautious in the festive celebration saying, “Not only city but cases of C-menace are increasing in many major cities of the country including Delhi and Mumbai. It is an alert for the citizens to remain vigil and to follow the norms to prevent the disease like they were doing during the lockdown.”
“People should celebrate the festival but must keep in mind to follow the COVID protocols as the disease is still with us and the fight is on,” Dr Dongre added.
