Both coronavirus deaths and detections have increased in the country in the last 24 hours compared to the previous day. A total of 41 people died of coronavirus infection between 8 am on Monday and 8 am on Tuesday. This is the highest number of deaths in 24 hours in the last 23 days. Earlier, on May 9, more than 56 people were killed in the last one day.
In the last 24 hours, 1,065 people have been diagnosed with corona infection. This information has been informed in the press release of the health department on Monday afternoon.
Earlier, 38 people died of coronavirus on Sunday. Corona infection was detected in 1,610 people.
The total number of patients diagnosed with coronavirus in the country so far is 6 lakh 2 thousand 305 people, the total number of deaths is 12 thousand 60 people. 6 lakh 42 thousand 151 people have recovered from Corona.
In the last 24 hours, samples of 16,250 people have been tested. Considering the test, the detection rate is 9.8 percent. The previous day’s detection rate was 9.41 percent.
According to the standards of the World Health Organization, the rate of patient identification is an indicator of understanding whether the situation is under control in a country. In a country where the patient detection rate is below 5 percent for at least two weeks in a row, the situation is under control.
In December 2019, the first new coronavirus infection occurred in Wuhan, China. Later it spread all over the world. The first corona infection was detected in the country on March 6 last year. Then the infection gradually increases. Towards the end of last year the infection started to decrease.
Corona infection has increased again since March this year. In the first half of March, the number of patients identified daily exceeded one thousand. The number of deaths is also increasing. The March 26 bulletin reported 34 deaths in the previous 24 hours, while a month later the April 25 bulletin reported 101 deaths.
Restrictions on human movement have been in place since April 5 as coronary infections and deaths continue to rise, which is still in effect. With these restrictions the situation has come under some control. In the middle of this month, the ‘lockdown’ centered on the holy Eid-ul-Fitr became loose. Seeing the huge crowd at Eid-centric shopping and travel, the public health experts and the Department of Health feared that the infection would increase again after Eid. Although the infection has not increased in that way yet, there is an upward trend since Eid. Meanwhile, the number of patients in 15 districts bordering India is increasing rapidly. Public health experts say the situation is likely to worsen if effective measures are not taken now
