Coronavirus update: 42 Covid-19 patients recover across India, no new case in several cities
Coronavirus pandemic has hit India hard. The virus which has claimed thousands of lives worldwide and 13 in the country so far, has also put India in a complete and total lockdown. However, unlike most parts in the world, the coronavirus epidemic is still in stage 2 in the country and the country-wide lockdown is to prevent the virus to progress towards stage 3. While an eminent gloom that has spread across the country the ray of hope is the fact that the doctors and medical staff of our country have been able to turn bad cases into miracles.
With India on its second stage of the covid-19 spread, 42 patients across the country have recovered and a slight dip in the number of new cases has also been observed in the country. No new case was reported in Lucknow and many other cities since last 2 days.
What's the update?
While coronavirus has made India come to a standstill, 42 patients who tested positive for Coronavirus have been treated with (now) a Covid-19 negative report. Though the number of positive cases in the country have increased to a total of 562, with 512 active cases so far.
With only a few newly reported cases across the country, India has observed a slight decrease in the number of fresh cases reported. However, some experts believe this could also be attributed to the shockingly low number of Covid-19 test kits and labs in the country.
Even so, this dip in the number of fresh cases has made us breathe a sigh of relief and can be accredited to the social distancing formula and the lockdown that is currently underway in the country.
India so far, has not seen the brunt of the Covid-19 spread which has claimed at least 18,000 lives in the world. The pandemic has not only crashed the global economy but has crushed the spirits of people who have long been stuck in their homes and are constantly under a deadly threat. We would advise our readers to practice social distancing strictly, not leave their homes unless extremely important and wash hands rigorously.

While humans continue to sit indoors during the lockdown period, nature continues to restore itself. The sky is clear, there is a noticeable change in air quality and the internet is flooded with videos of fauna returning to their habitats. Amidst all these pleasant changes that are helping people stay positive and sane in these tough times, is a new picture straight from Jalandhar, Punjab.
Amidst the incessant dark and doomed news pieces being circulated related to COVID-19 deaths and active cases around the world, including India, it is also important to focus on the positive side of the stories too. In a pleasant turn of events, an elderly Kerala couple have recovered from COVID-19. They had contracted this deadly virus from their children and grandson, who had returned from Italy and the rest of the family too, have now recovered from this disease.
In light of recent events that have occurred almost all over India, Spicejet, the privately run airline, has offered to lend a helping hand to all migrant workers who are stuck in Delhi and Mumbai.
