AHMEDABAD: As the reduction in daily Covid-19 cases continued in the state, Ahmedabad city on Monday recorded 459 new Covid-19 cases in the past 24 hours, the lowest figure in 64 days. This is a fall of 57% in four days, one of the fastest during the pandemic. For the city, it was also the fifth consecutive day of less than 10 mortalities due to Covid-19.
On Monday, against 3,187 new cases, 9,305 patients were discharged – about three times more than new patients. With this update, the state’s recovery rate again reached 90% after over one and a half months.
Analysis of Covid cases in the eight municipal corporations reveals that the share of the cities currently hovers around 43% — one of the lowest of all time. To put the figure in perspective, in March, this figure was 70% to 75%. Likewise, with 17 deaths on Monday, the share of cities was 38%, again one of the lowest of the pandemic.
Experts said the figures show the spread of Covid in almost all districts.
“The share of cities has fallen, which is welcome news, but the focus area for some time will be rural areas,” said a city-based epidemiologist.
