Of the 30,635 cases reported so far, as many as 30,254 patients have recovered from the infection, while 376 people have died of the deadly disease. The general public as well as the local Health Department are now feeling much relieved after the devastating second wave that put the health infrastructure under strain during the April-May period.
On May 11 this year, 2,988 people in the district were battling the virus.
Even though Covid cases have declined significantly, the Health Department has asked people to not become complacent and continue to observe Covid-appropriate behaviour such as wearing masks, maintaining social distance and frequently sanitising hands.
Besides Covid-appropriate behaviour, doctors have strongly recommended vaccination as the only weapon to combat the infection.
However, the pace of vaccination has been hit hard in the district due to irregular supply of doses.
