Increase in active covid cases in Rajasthan

Jaipur: The number of active COVID-19 cases in Rajasthan has risen to 61, with a total of 17 fresh cases being reported in the state in the last 24 hours, out of which 10 are from Jaipur.

According to health officials, apart from Jaipur, Barmer (four), Ajmer (two) and Jodhpur (one) have reported cases.

Officials said this is the first time in three months that the number of new cases in the state capital is in double digits.

This figure is a matter of concern as all the schools and colleges of Jaipur will start classes individually from November 15 with 100% arrangement.

Also, an international cricket match between India and New Zealand will be held on November 17 at the SMS Stadium, where again 100 per cent seating has been allowed. But only fully vaccinated spectators will be allowed.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has warned people to continue following the COVID protocol in view of the rising number of cases.

In a statement on 25 October, he had said that several cases of Delta Plus AY.4.2 have also been reported in India. It spreads even faster than the delta variant. Based on the experience of other countries, the central government should prepare and issue SOPs for its prevention in time.

Initially, there were only a few cases of the delta variant but it did not take time for it to spread across the country. This variant requires thorough preparation so that a similar experience to the Delta variant is avoided.

State Health Minister Raghu Sharma while making positive remarks said that Rajasthan is performing much better than the national average in the matter of corona vaccination.

83 percent of people have been given the first dose and 48.9 percent have been fully vaccinated against the disease.

Efforts are on to promote immunization in the state under a special action plan, which includes increasing the number of immunization camps in districts with low vaccination rates, he said.
