Coronavirus Third Wave India Highlights, Coronavirus Statistics India Highlights: India recorded slightly lower number of fresh Covid-19 infections today. The health ministry’s updated data says that the nation detected 43,509 new corona cases in the last 24 hours. On the other hand, the number of deaths saw a spike breaching the 500-mark with 640 Covid fatalities on Thursday. Meanwhile, the overall recovery rate has improved to 97.38 per cent. In a worrying sign, the number of recoveries was less than the number of new infections. The morning health bulletin said that 38,465 Indians were cured of Covid-19 as of 8 am today. After the dip, the active caseload increased marginally to 4,03,840.

India’s corona graph has witnessed a significant uptick this week. One of the key reasons is the sharp spike in new Covid-19 cases in Kerala. The state accounts for nearly half of the total caseload in the country. Meanwhile, days after the WHO announced that it would be launching a fresh round of probe into the origins of novel coronavirus, China has not only rejected the idea of the probe but also accused the US of hiding some crucial details. Beijing says that if the world officials are looking to investigate the labs then America’s Fort Detrick lab must also be probed. Many say that this is just another tactic by China to deflect the attention from phase 2 of the WHO probe. The new round of investigation must not transform into another platform for the US and China to trade allegations. Because remember, with each passing day, we are going further away from the truth of coronavirus. This will only push humanity into an uncertain future.

Meanwhile in India, the Narendra Modi government has decided to ask the states to submit fresh data related to the Oxygen deaths during the second wave of coronavirus. This comes after the Centre replied in Parliament that it doesn’t have ‘any data’ related to Oxygen deaths in the country.
