Coronavirus deaths and detections in the country have increased compared to the previous day. A total of 34 people died of coronavirus infection between 8am on Thursday and 8am on Friday. In those 24 hours, 1,006 people were diagnosed with coronary heart disease. This information has been informed in the press release of the health department on Friday afternoon.
In the previous 24 hours, 30 people died of coronavirus infection. And corona infection was detected in 1 thousand 6 people.
With this, the total number of patients infected with coronavirus in the country so far stands at 6 lakh 7 thousand 6 people. A total of 12,656 people died. 6 lakh 46 thousand 758 people have recovered from Corona.
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 identification rate is less than 5 percent as opposed to testing for at least two consecutive weeks, the situation is considered to be 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. From March this year, corona infection increased again. 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 the April 19 bulletin reported 112 deaths in the previous 24 hours. The highest number of deaths occurred in the country on the same day after the onset of corona infection.
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 has become loose. Seeing the huge turnout for Eid-centric shopping and travel, 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 could worsen if effective measures are not taken now.
