Still dealing with 2nd wave, pandemic far from over: Go nment
NEW DELHI: Maharashtra and Ker recorded more than half of the coronavir s cases registered in India last week, the Centre said on Friday as it stressed that the pandemic is far from over and that people thronging tourist hotspots without following Covid-appropriate behaviour is a “serious cause of concern”.
Any such negligence increases the risk of spread of infection, the go nment said, expressing concern over visuals of crowded places with people not following Covid-appropriate behaviour and social distancing. In a press conference, Lav Agarwal, joint secretary in the health ministry, said, “The country is still dealing with the second wave and we need to introspect if we can afford the misplaced belief that Covid-19 is over.”
Expressing his concern over the sight of crowded places with people not following Covid-19 norms, PM Modi said on Thursday that there should be no space for carelessness or complacency and that a single mistake would have far-reaching impact and may weaken the fight ag inst the pandemic.
“Around 80% of the new Covid cases in India are being reported from 90 districts across 15 states and Union Territories, including Maharashtra, Ker, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, indicating the need for focussed attention in these areas,” Agarwal said.
“53% of the total cases last week primarily have been reported from two states — Maharashtra (21%) and Ker (32%) — which is a cause of concern,” he said.
“We are coordinating with the states to control the spread of infection through intensive containment measures,” he added. He also said 66 districts across 17 states and UTs reported Covid-19 positivity rate of more than 10% in the week ending July 8.
Niti Aayog member (Health) V K Paul said the reduction in cases were earlier sharp but now the pace of slowdown has reduced which shows that one should not take the “situation for granted”.
Niti Aayog成员V K Paul说，早期病例减少的速度非常快，但现在下降的速度已经减缓，这表明人们不应该掉以轻心。
Like 2nd wave, undisciplined states like Ker, Maharashtra etc. are again showing spread of the pandemic.
No one seems bothered with still continuing second wave of China Vir s and even less about the third wave forecast by experts. These are the very people who will cry foul ag inst the go nment when they loose a loved one to Covid.
The state which disregard and behaved indifferent during first wave are now facing tune
Super spreader maharashtra
Modi did not address the core issues .. Industrial Development, Job Creation, Exports Growth, poverty reduction. Nothing. only thing happened is the two billionaires Ambani & Adani got more richer while millions of innocent Indians sunk into deeper poverty.
If you sincerely realize that the second wave is still not over & third wave is staring at us then please restrict interstate travel & restrict tourists from entering tourist spots.
What about various ions in the country, that can happen in this pandemic?? We all know that no Covid appropriate behavior followed in ions !!
He forgot Bengal ions
pandemic not over but lockfowns are lifted everywhere and people are crowding like there is no tomorrow.
We are still dealing with first COVID-19 wave. Ignorant or impatient people are talking about third or fourth wave.
which translates to we don't know what we are doing again!!!
as the govt was asleep during the second wave and doing rallies or dhahi snaan etc they were too busy to prepare for thousands of citizens dying
even now they don't have any remorse
no concern was there when ion rallies were going on...shame
our leaders will blame Modi for slowdonw in Indian economy
These two states are the origin of second wave and still accounts for half the case in the country.Still they have relaxed on protocol and large gatherings of people can be seen every where.
Message from Trump. Shoddy work on Coronavir s leads to being boed out of the White House
In July 2021, India faces a new dilemma. From the start of Covid Crisis, proof of the Go nment’s cm to managing the Crisis well has been that India either leads the World in having the number of Recoveries or is among the top.
That means second wave is still in action . The fear of third wave is raising the red signal . A crucial point !
Enough is enough. Stop this publishing of fake news.
wave 3 is already in progress
Under the great leadership of Modi we will never come out of Pandemic.
