Corona cases have increased daily in some states. However, at present this increase is only partial. In view of the positivity rate, the central government on Friday directed Kerala, Mizoram, Maharashtra, Delhi and Haryana to monitor the spread of the infection and take necessary steps for immediate and effective management.

In his message, Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan said, “India has seen a steady and significant decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in the last two months. Less than 1,000 new cases have been reported daily in the country in the recent past. The weekly positivity rate is below one percent, however, some states are reporting more new cases than others.

The health switch specifically highlights that 2,321 new cases were reported in Kerala last week, which accounts for 31.8% of the new cases in India. “The positivity rate in the state has increased from 13.4 per cent in the last week to 15.5 per cent,” he wrote to Kerala. “Regular monitoring and prompt action is critical in emerging areas of concern,” he wrote to the states.

Similarly, he has also alerted Mizoram. It reported 814 new cases last week, accounting for 11.16% of India’s new cases for the same period. “The positivity rate of the state also increased from 14.3% to 16.4%,” he wrote.

Similarly, the Union Health Secretary has also expressed concern over fresh cases and above average positivity rates in Maharashtra, Delhi and Haryana. Urged these states to follow test, track, treat, immunization strategies for COVID. The government has directed that all health facilities be regularly monitored for cases of influenza-like illness (ILI) and severe acute respiratory illness (SARI), especially to detect early warning signs of infection.

The Health Ministry has also requested the states to conduct genomic sequencing of samples from international tourists and local clusters of cases.
