Half of Indian districts have no coronavirus cases

While coronavirus cases in India have been rising in some districts, there are some districts in the country where a single case hasn’t been reported.

400 districts out of 718 districts in the country, i.e. more than half of Indian districts have not reported a single coronavirus case.

Meanwhile, 773 positive cases and 32 new deaths were reported on Wednesday, which is the highest in the last 24 hours till now.

The government is taking various measures to build medical centres and quarantine centres. To prevent healthcare workers from being infected with coronavirus, various infection prevention and control measures are being taken by the government.

Despite these measures, a doctor from Indore died. This is the first casualty reported from the frontline warriors in the country.

Meanwhile, several countries are requesting India to send Hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus. India decided to export the drug to badly affected countries including the US.

In this context, the Health Ministry assured that there is enough stock of Hydroxychloroquine to meet the needs of the citizens in the country as well. These stocks can meet the future needs of the country as well, and India has the potential to manufacture medicines to meet global needs.

India is under lockdown which will continue until April 14. However, the lockdown may be extended as several state governments are requesting for an extension of lockdown.

Several hotspots have been identified by the governments where the maximum number of cases have been reported or transmission of virus happened.

Meanwhile, the Odisha government announced the extension of lockdown until the end of this month. It is the first state to extend the lockdown in the country. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has also requested the central government not to start train and air services till April 30th.
