Drop in COVID cases in India…! For the second day in a row, the number of coronavirus cases in India fell below 1 lakh. According to Union Health Ministry data on Wednesday morning, the COVID-19 caseload increased by 92,596 new infections, slightly higher than the previous day’s record, while 2219 deaths were added in the last 24 hours.
With this, the total number of COVID cases surpassed 2,90,89,069, with a total death toll of 3,53,528. Meanwhile, 1,62,664 discharges occurred yesterday, bringing the total number of recoveries to 2,75,04,126.
There are 12,31,415 active cases in India. COVID-19 has variable symptoms, but is often associated with fever, toux, headache, fatigue, difficulty breathing, and smell and feeling loss.
Symptoms can start one to 14 days after the virus has been exposed. At least one third of infected persons do not experience significant symptoms. Most (81%) develop mild to moderate (but mild pneumonia), whereas 14% develop severe symptoms (dyspnea, hypoxia or more than 50 percent lung involvement in the imaging) and 50% have critical symptoms. Currently, 5% are symptoms that can be considered patients (respiratory failure, shock, or multiorgan dysfunction).
The risk of severe symptoms in older people is higher. For months after recovery, certain people continue to experience a number of effects (long-term COVID) and organ harm has been noted. More than one-year studies on the long-term effects of the disease are ongoing.
