Daily infection rate at 14.78%

On January 1, the daily infection rate was 2.05 per cent and the weekly infection rate was 1.10 per cent.
11 times increase in new patients so far
The effect of the third wave is visible on every front of the corona infection. If we talk about January only, so far there has been an 11-fold increase in the number of new patients every day. According to the data of the ministry, 2,64,202 new patients have been found till Friday, whereas only 22,775 new cases were found on January 1.
Active cases increased from 0.30 to 3.48%
A rapid increase in new cases is also being seen in active cases. At present, active cases have increased to 12,72,073 which is the highest in 220 days and 3.48 per cent of the total cases. On January 1, active cases were 1,04,781 and only 0.30 per cent of the total cases remained.
Some relief in the case of deaths from Corona
The rapidly increasing number of infected in the third wave of the corona epidemic is frightening, but there is some relief in the cases of death. On the last day, 315 people have lost their lives. In the second wave i.e. in April-May last year, when more than two lakh new cases were being received daily, then more than one and a half thousand deaths were taking place every day. At present, there is a steady decline in the death rate which is currently 1.33 per cent.
Things can change with Omicron
The situation is also expected to change rapidly in the third wave due to Corona’s new variant Omicron. The main reason for this is the increasing cases of Omicron. In the last day, there has been an increase of 6.7 per cent in new cases and Omicron is believed to be the main reason for this. So far, a total of 5753 cases of Omicron have been found in the country.
Omicron variant in two thirds
Even though a total of 5753 cases of Omicron have been confirmed in the country so far, the truth is that more than two-thirds of the new cases are from this. Since the confirmation of Omicron is done only through genome sequencing and genome sequencing of all infected is not possible as it is a lengthy process. However, in all the cases for which genome sequencing is being done, two-thirds of them are found to have an Omicron variant.
