New Delhi: The daily Covid positivity rate — the number of positive cases against the total tests done — continued to remain below 10 percent in Uttar Pradesh for the fourth consecutive day since the middle of last month, according to official data.

This rate was at its highest at 16.84 percent on April 24 during the second wave of the pandemic. It has now come down to nearly 7 percent.

Despite being the most populous state, Uttar Pradesh under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has been healing effectively as recoveries surpassed fresh Covid cases for twelfth day in a row.

A total of 17,775 new cases were recorded in the last 24 hours, whereas, the number of recoveries was 19,425, which has added to the positive recovery graph of the state.

With daily recoveries consistently improving, more than 13,40,251 people have so far won their battle against the deadly virus.

With the state managing to flatten the curve and limiting the transmission of the deadly virus, the covid-19 situation in Uttar Pradesh has witnessed significant improvement as the number of active cases have drastically been reduced by nearly 1.06 lakh in the last twelve days with swift recovery of covid patients even in home isolation.

The number of active Covid cases in the state has now dropped to nearly 2.04 lakh.

The Yogi Government with its multi-pronged strategy to contain the virus has been able to restrict the number of cases much below the predicted figures by the experts while cases have started dropping since the beginning of May itself.
