71% drop in Covid cases in Haryana after June 22

Chandigarh, July 18

The state has witnessed almost 71 per cent decline in Covid cases with 146 infections on June 22 this year to 41 on July 17.

An official spokesperson said the state’s recovery rate had also improved by 0.15 per cent from 98.50 per cent on June 22 to 98.65 per cent on July 17. However, the fatality rate has increased by 0.04 per cent from 1.21 per cent on June 22 to 1.25 per cent on July 17.

Elaborating on the reasons for the slight rise in the fatality rate, the spokesperson said before declaring a Covid death, an audit was conducted as per the medical guidelines. He said though the positivity rate had declined from 0.46 per cent on June 22 to 0.14 per cent on July 17, the fatality rate has increased as the deaths were reported much later after ascertaining the exact cause. — TNS
