Daily COVID tally in Lucknow dips to 0 on Monday after 15 months!

COVID-appropriate behaviour and complete adherence to all stated protocols stand crucial for mitigating the third wave.

Ushering major relief for the Lucknow dwellers, daily COVID cases dwindled down to 0 in the city, on Monday. With no new infection and 2 recoveries recorded on the same day, the graph of active patients sloped downwards reaching a point of 26 cases. While the COVID situation has been brought under control after the horrifying repercussions of the second wave, it is incumbent upon the city residents to ensure a strengthened shield against the expected third wave.

Over 2.38 lakh individuals affected by the deadly virus in Lucknow till now!

As per records, single-digit cases have been recorded in Lucknow for the past 10 days now. Maintaining a strict check over the situation, the Health Department is making sure that nearly 20,000 diagnostic tests are conducted every day. While Lucknow witnessed its first COVID case on March 11 last year, a cumulative total of 2,38,672 individuals in the city have been affected by the deadly virus till now.

During the second wave of the pandemic, the fatal contagion gripped a large number of citizens and the maximum number of 6,598 cases was recorded on April 16. Thereafter, the case tallies stabilised and undertook a steep downward trajectory. Notably, 2,651 individuals have succumbed to the deadly virus in Lucknow till now and the biggest proportion of these fatalities were marked during April-May 2021 when the second wave exploded.

COVID-appropriate behaviour, the need of the hour!

While the positivity and fatality rates have reduced considerably in the state and the capital city, the future is still shrouded by anticipations of the third wave. If we want to mitigate the possibilities of the revived acceleration of infections, we have to ensure COVID-appropriate behaviour at all times and at all places.

Besides this, non-inoculated individuals must get their vaccines as soon as possible. A safe and secure tomorrow can only be assured if we collectively prevent the virus from reviving its transmissibility.
