Spike in COVID-19 cases in Rajasthan according to the Health Department of Rajasthan
Rajasthan: Rajasthan saw a spike in COVID-19 active cases in the last 24 hours with 1,213 confirmed positive cases that have taken the tally of the total cases to 56,708 cases with active cases to 14,056 cases and 41,819 recoveries.
This increase in cases can be seen as a continuation of the number of cases a day before yesterday with over 1,200 cases reported and there have been continuous cases of above 1,200 cases in the state in the last few days.
This can be considered as less awareness in the people of Rajasthan who have been not trying to ensure social distancing. This can also be seen in the political class in Rajasthan which has not ensured social distancing even in their meetings.
There has been less testing conducted in the state of 23,553 tests per million which are not enough according to the population and the land area of the state. There has been an increase in the recovery rate of 74.2% which is higher than the recovery rate of overall India which is above 60%.
But this cannot be considered as the full success of the Government of Rajasthan and there need to be more measures taken which can reduce the number of cases to less than 100. There needs to be the adoption of the social distancing measures which need to be enforced and the violators punished in the proper sense.
There have been several issues of patients not receiving the proper treatment and there was no proper measure taken to give proper medicine which needs to be looked at by the State Government especially by the Health Government. There is also a need for the provision for more PPEs to the doctors and the health care workers who are working to treat the COVID-19 patients.
