Tuesday reported 1,684 fresh cases of the Covid-19, which has taken the case load to 1,72,130 in Haryana. The Covid-19 death toll rose to 1,817, with seven more fatalities in Haryana.
If we have a look about different districts , there were 460 cases in Gurugram district while 296 cases in Faridabad, 189 cases in Hisar, 86 cases in Rewari, 70 cases in Rohtak, and 62 cases in Bhiwani. Of the fresh fatalities, four were reported from Rohtak had 4 fresh fatalities where as there was one each from Gurugram, Karnal, Jhajjar, as per the state health department’s daily bulletin. Total 1258 Covid-19 patients were released from different hospitals of Haryana after recovery. Thereby making total count to 1,56,975.Active cases in the State currently stand at 13,338 while the recovery rate was 91.20 per cent, the bulletin said. September proved one of the worst months for Haryana in terms of new cases of coronavirus infections and deaths due to Covid-19. October so far is showing considerable signs of slowdown. While the first 11 days of September added 21,906 new cases (25,824 tests conducted during September 1-11) of coronavirus infections, in October’s first 11 days, 12,243 people have tested positive (26,089 tests conducted during October 1-11).
It is far easier to conduct an antigen test. Antigen test kits give results in a matter of minutes at the site of collection. For a molecular test, though, the collected sample has to be sent under very stringent conditions to the nearest centre with an RT-PCR machine, which can be hours away. And then, given the shortage of RT-PCR capacity in most parts of the country, the results may take anywhere from two to six days. The far-easier antigen test has been embraced to show that testing is rising, ignoring its inherent inaccuracy.
Haryana should not be misled by a this fall in covid numbers.May be insufficient and inaccurate testing has meant the numbers we’re seeing understate the true picture.It is widely accepted that reported infection and mortality numbers have always been significantly lower than reality.In Haryana how many tests are being done with rapid antigen tests , data is not available . So we have to be careful about COVID-19 infection even in this phase .So we have to be still careful about COVID-19 Pandemic situation in Haryana.
There should be universal access to vaccine for all people free of cost. This is the practice in independent India since the very beginning – from the campaign for the eradication of smallpox to latest campaigns on eliminating polio.The central government is primarily responsible and has always conducted big awareness programmes urging
people to get vaccinated. It should be similar with the Covid-19 vaccination, which hopefully, will be available soon.
