The death toll has climbed to 4,02,005 with 955 more fatalities, while the case fatality rate has risen to 1.32 per cent from 1.31 per cent, the data updated at 8 am showed.


The active cases have further declined to 4,85,350 and comprise 1.59 per cent of the total infections, while the national Covid-19 recovery rate has improved to 97.09 per cent, the ministry said.


It said active cases have declined by 10,183 in a span of 24 hours.

The data stated that 18,38,490 tests were conducted on Saturday, taking the total cumulative tests conducted so far for detection of Covid-19 in the country to 41,82,54,953.

The daily positivity rate was recorded at 2.34 per cent. It has been less than five per cent for 27 consecutive days, the ministry said.

Recoveries continue to outnumber daily new cases for 52 consecutive days, it said.

Shivakumar’s vax challenge for Yeddy

Congress leader DK Shivakumar on Sunday challenged the Karnataka government to fully vaccinate 80 per cent of the adult population in the state by September-end. “Experts are predicting that the third wave will hit us by October. If we fully vaccinate at least 80 per cent of the adult population by September-end, there may be no third wave. Even if there is, it will be very mild. That is why I am asking the Karnataka government if they are up for this challenge?” he asked. The state has so far fully vaccinated only about 7 per cent of the eligible population, he claimed. “What matters is a double dose. Studies from Mumbai, London, New York are all saying both doses will save us.”
