Coronavirus Statistics India, Covid-19 Cases and Deaths in India on July 7 Live Updates: India’s Covid tally saw a marginal uptick in terms of cases and deaths today. As per the official data, 43,733 fresh Covid-19 infections were detected in the last 24 hours. In terms of fatalities, the government bulletin said that 930 people lost their lives due to coronavirus. Co-morbidities are the main reason in as many as 70 per cent of the Covid deaths, the government has said. In a disturbing trend, while the new infections are increasing, the vaccination rate has gone down. As against the 46 lakh Covid jabs on July 5, around 36 lakh doses were administered on July 6. There is a sharp dip in the number of people vaccinated across the nation. The Centre, on the other hand, maintains that around 1.6 crore doses are still with the states. This means that there is ample stock with the local authorities. So, what is hampering the daily vaccination drive? No clear answer yet!
Meanwhile, the ICMR has also reacted to the viral photos from Manali. Is it pandemic fatigue? Is it plain boredom? Or just a strong urge of doing something on whim? How would you explain the massive crowd of tourists thronging popular hill stations such as Manali and Mussoorie? While health experts have repeatedly said that there is no escaping from another wave of deaths and destruction if we let our guard down, the viral photos show people are not in any mood to listen to the warnings. From National Capital Delhi shutting down marketplaces due to laxity in following Covid norms, states such as Assam has decided to impose total lockdown in seven districts from today. These seven districts are Sonitpur, Goalpara, Lakhimpur, Biswanath, Golaghat, Morigaon and Jorhat.
Apart from these curbs, another consistent issue is of poor vaccination rate. China has been vaccinating more than 1 crore people every day. In comparison to that, India’s vaccination rate hovers somewhere around the 40-50 lakh mark. Scientists have said that the Delta variant can escape the defence shield of vaccines. Yet the inoculation provides enough immunity that can help in avoiding hospitalisation.
