India has lodged 47 fresh covid-19 cases in the last 24 hours, the union health ministry data stated on Monday. Meanwhile, the number of active cases has declined to 1,655 taking the total number of covid cases to over 4.50 crore so far.
For the last three months, the covid cases drastically declined after surge in cases due to XBB.1.16 Omicron variant. The covid pandemic which started in early 2020 has killed around 5,31,903 (5.31 lakh) people in the last 3-and-half-years.
Hospitals are witnessing empty covid wards due to decline in covid cases which is a sign of great relief for doctors. However, people who are elderly and have comorbid conditions are still vulnerable to catch infection.
Furthermore, doctors have recommended such people to take their booster dose if not done yet and follow covid appropriate behavior.
