The second wave of corona had turned the state upside down with its peak of casualties. March and April were worst hit months for the people of Nagpur. On March 29, Nagpur’s positivity rate had jumped to 45.2 per cent. However, in the last two months, the positivity rate has reached a record low of less than 5 per cent.
Considering the drastic drop in positive cases in parts of Maharashtra the government has also relaxed the restrictions. However, the municipal corporation administration has now warned citizens that if the positivity rate goes beyond 5 per cent, restrictions will be imposed again.
Despite less cases, the threat of the novel coronavirus still exists and therefore citizens are urged to abide by the rules to maintain the drop and avoid restrictions.
It is worth mentioning that the district administration along with the municipal administration has gained control over the spread of virus without reducing the COVID test.
More than 8,000 tests are being conducted daily in the city and district. If more and more citizens test the corona, it will help keep the rate low.
According to an ICMR report, the highest number of victims registered was in March and April.
Nagpur city and district had the highest positivity rate of 42.5 per cent on April 4, 41.17 per cent on April 6 and 42.44 per cent on April 11. Due to the increase in the number of Covid patients, the authorities increased the number of corona tests. Fortunately, after the imposition of restrictions the cases gradually came down poviding relief to the administration.
