 Mizoram sees decline in active Covid19 cases




Mizoram COVID-19 count reached 1,34,279 as 358 people have tested positive for the infection on Sunday. The death toll remains at 491 as one more person succumbed to the infection. The single-day positivity rate was 11.40 per cent while it was 11.20 per cent on the previous day.


The state of Mizoram has seen a decline in active Covid19 cases however, health experts have advised the public to remain cautious saying the Covid19 active cases are lower because the testing is symptom-based.


A review meeting on the Covid19 situation in Mizoram was held under the chairmanship of Health Minister Dr. R. Lalthangliana on Thursday at the SAD Conference Hall, MINECO. At the meeting it was reported that a high percentage of Covid19 deaths were reported to be unvaccinated and late in undertaking necessary tests despite having symptoms.


The officials said while it was positive news to see the Covid19 positive rates declining, the tests are now symptomatic based and it is not advisable that the public become negligent. While the rate of Covid19 deaths are high in Mizoram as compared to other Northeast states, after a careful study it was found that the deaths were highly a result of delay in taking Covid19 tests despite showing symptoms, as well as failure to take Covid19 vaccines, they said. The fresh cases were reported from various districts with Aizawl reporting the highest at 176.


The number of active cases now stands at 4,117, while 1,29,954 people have recovered from the infection so far.


The recovery rate among COVID-19 patients is 96.78% per cent and out of 491 deaths, 81.47% had comorbidities.
