Corona cases are declining in India but testing facilities are less in rural areas

Web Desk. India reported a further drop in Coronavirus cases on Monday, but the death toll from the epidemic is still more than 4,000. According to the British news agency Reuters, experts have warned that “the virus is spreading rapidly due to the lack of testing facilities in rural areas.”

For the past several months, India has been badly affected by the coronavirus, and more than 400,000 cases are being reported daily. Soumya Swaminathan chief scientist at the World Health Organization said, “in many states, coronavirus testing is still inadequate.”

Soumya Swaminathan said there are many areas in the country where the coronavirus epidemic has not yet reached its peak. She added the number of confirmed cases of Covarnavirus in the country is very high.

According to the Indian Ministry of Health, more than 280,000 cases have been reported in the last 24 hours while 4,106 deaths have been reported. The first wave of coronavirus in India, which peaked in September, was mostly in urban areas, but now the epidemic has spread to rural areas and villages, spreading rapidly.

Of India’s 1.3 billion people, most live in rural areas. There is a severe lack of testing facilities in these areas.

S. Vincent Rajkumar, a professor at the Mayo Clinic in the United States, said on Twitter that “the decline in coronavirus cases in India is a mere figment of imagination.” He said the number of corona cases is low due to a limited testing facility and the fact that confirmed cases appear where it is confirmed.

 

“India has vaccinated 2.9% of its population.”

Lockdowns in various Indian cities have reduced the number of cases of coronavirus, but rural areas and some states are dealing with increasing cases of corona.

The government on Sunday issued rules and regulations to monitor cases of the coronavirus. The government has asked the health ministry to “search for people with flu-like illnesses in rural areas and test for coronavirus.”
