Second Wave Still Not Over, 8 States Showing High 'R' Value, Warns Centre

8 districts showed an increasing trend in cases in last four weeks, according to government

New Delhi:

The pandemic is “still raging” in the country and eight states have shown a rise in the R-factor, the government said today, calling it a “significant problem”.

As many as 44 districts have reported a high case positivity and the Delta-driven second wave is still not over, warned VK Paul, who heads the government’s Covid task force. Eighteen districts showed an increasing trend in cases in the last four weeks, according to the government.

“Delta variant is a dominant problem. The pandemic is still raging and the second wave is persisting in our own country,” Dr Paul said, expressing concern about the R-factor or the reproductive rate of a virus, which indicates how fast it is spreading.

“Please remember that R number should be 0.6 or below. If it has gone over 1, it shows it is a significant problem and the virus wants to spread,” said Dr Paul.

He said the number of districts with high positivity had decreased from the previous week but per state the number of districts with high positivity has decreased from the previous week. Now new states are showing districts with high positivity, he said.
