Covid-19: 89 dead & 6,143 infected in Assam, positivity rate 6% | Guwahati News


GUWAHATI: Eighty-nine people died of Covid-19 in Assam on Wednesday, while 6,143 new cases were detected in the last 24 hours. The positivity rate in the state dropped to 6.02% from 6.47% on Tuesday.
The Covid recovery rate in the state was 84.97% on Wednesday. This was after 4,057 patients were discharged in the last 24 hours.
Even after the daily tests crossed one lakh-mark on Wednesday after a long time, the increase in the number of fresh cases was by about 300, as compared to Tuesday.
The marginal improvement in positivity rate is not helping the health department to draw a conclusion. Senior health officials in Assam have predicted that the second wave of Covid-19 will reach its peak towards May-end.
“The Covid picture is expected to be clear in about the next three days. As of now, all we can say is that the situation is stable, especially in Kamrup (Metropolitan) district. No alarming rise in new cases has been seen in the state and this has been the major relief,” said executive director of Assam National Health Mission, Dr Manoj Choudhury.
Despite registering 913 cases in Kamrup (Metropolitan) on Wednesday — highest among all districts — the fresh Covid cases detected in the district has been much lower in comparison to the daily surge about a week ago when about 1,500 cases were being detected everyday.
“In peripheral areas, we have increased testing. Many cases are being detected in rural districts through contact tracing and other means. The overall scenario in the state remains unchanged for the last three days,” Choudhury added.
After Kamrup (Metropolitan) district, Nagaon (448), Cachar (438) and Dibrugarh (397) reported the maximum number of cases on Wednesday. The number of active cases has gone up from Tuesday’s 46,393 to 48,390.
