Due to better recovery of corona patients, active cases have come down to the lowest after five months. However, the situation still remains grim in some states. Also, the common mutation of the virus continues to strengthen the chances of new threats. After about 150 days, the number of active patients has dropped to 3,18,181 now. The effective rate in the country is 0.95 percent. Apart from this, the corona detection rate also increased rapidly, now at 97.72 percent.

The Union Department of Health said on Monday, 30,256 new patients infected with the corona appeared one day ago and 295 people died.

Drop in vaccines by up to  80% 

Following the vaccination record, enrollment has dropped by 80 percent in two days. On September 17, on the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, more than 2.51 crore people across the country had taken the drug, but after that, the biggest drop was also recorded on Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, 88.37 lakh people took the vaccine a day, and on Sunday the number dropped to 37 lakh. With this, the total vaccination in the country is now 81 crores. Of these, more than 20.44 crore people completed their vaccination by taking a second dose.

The corona virus can also cause the problem by spreading through the air. According to scientists from the University of Maryland, USA, the Corona variant grows its family by spreading it in the air and strengthening itself further. This can increase the risk of infection. According to scientists, to avoid the virus, a very strong mask will need to be applied to the mouth.

Leading researcher Prof. Don Milton says we know that delta diversity is more contagious than alpha. High levels of the virus have been found in the saliva and nose of people infected with alpha variety. There is a high risk of transmitting the infection to other people from the virus that is present in the nose and mouth.

Infected person also releases virus through breath

The infected person also releases the virus through breath. People who are infected with the alpha variant release 43 to 100 times more virus into the air than the original form of the virus.
