Listen to the news
Six lakh investigations have been reduced in the last three days
If you look at the status of daily investigations, then in the last three days, the investigation of 6 lakh samples has reduced. Not only this, it is around eight lakhs, which is the lowest in two months. Before the festival, more than 11 lakh samples were being tested on an average every week. While 88 lakh samples have been tested daily in 3 days. Newly infected patients have also come down due to less investigation. Looking at the infection rate, almost the same figures are seen. Former IIT professor Rijoam John said that India is conducting eight lakh investigations every day for three days. If you look at the seven-day average figure, it is the lowest in two months.
For example, if we take Delhi, till three days ago, more than 60 thousand tests were being done everyday, in which 8,000 were getting infected. Right now the investigation is 29 to 30 thousand. Due to this, the number of patients is also less than 50 percent. In the last 24 hours, there have been 3700 infected in 29,000 tests in Delhi, due to which the number of patients is also showing less due to less investigation.
Investigation less but corona growth more
In some states, even though the investigation figures have come down, the growth rate of Corona is not showing any effect. Himachal and Delhi have increased the most. The growth rate is two to 1.4 percent. 1.3 in Mizoram, 1.2 in Haryana and 1.1-1.1 percent in Ladakh and Kerala are increasing daily.
