The Indian government has written to six states, including Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka, which have reported a sudden increase in Covid-19 cases, asking them to focus on testing, treating, tracking, and vaccination to control the spread of the virus.

The Union Health Secretary has urged the states to follow a risk assessment-based approach to prevent and contain the infection without losing the gains made so far in the fight against the pandemic. The letter also advised the states to maintain a strict watch and take pre-emptive action if required in any areas of concern.

The states have been asked to examine the Covid-19 situation at the micro-level, such as district and sub-districts, and ensure effective compliance with the various advisories issued by the Ministry of Health. On Thursday, more than 700 Covid-19 cases were recorded in a day after a gap of over four months, taking the active caseload to 4,623, according to Union Health Ministry data.

The active cases of Covid-19 now only comprise 0.01% of the total infections, with a high national recovery rate of 98.80%. The number of people who have recovered from the virus is a significant 4,41,57,297, while the case fatality rate stands at 1.19%. The administration of 220.64 crore doses of Covid vaccines under the nationwide vaccination drive is also a positive sign.
