Great relief from strict restrictions
– Sandeep Tripathi
Kolkata Strict restrictions are beginning to be seen in the state. A week ago, the positivity rate in Kolkata was 41%. At the same time, it has come down to 29.57%. Statistics from the Union Health Ministry show that the corona virus has a positive rate in North 24 Parganas district of the state as the highest at 34.32%. Health experts say that if such restrictions continue, it will decrease further. Also, people will be able to breathe some relief. It is noteworthy that the state government has extended the restrictions till June 15, so that it can be fought against Corona. Dr. Rajiv Pandey of the West Bengal Doctors Forum (WBDF) said that we still need to take tough steps to compete with Corona. Only this can further reduce the cases of Corona in the state. The unbridled second wave of Corona in the country seems to be breaking now. In this sequence, the cases of corona have now started decreasing rapidly in the state as well. However, despite Corona’s steady pace, the death toll has started to scare.
The positivity rate from sample test is 11.01% in the state. Active cases are registered at 1,02,398. In addition, the discharge rate of corona virus patients has now reached 91.32%. However, more than 100 deaths a day from corona virus infection remain a concern every day. Senior Physician Dr. R.D. Dubey said that at the present time we need to emphasize more and more vaccination. With this, we will be able to control the corona virus epidemic to some extent. In addition to wearing masks, attention will have to be paid to sanitization.
