When the thick clouds of despair have filled the skies across the world, the little winnings is all we need to give us hope. The citizens of Bangalore woke up to a piece of good news on Friday. Reportedly more than 50% of COVID-19 patients in Bangalore recovered. It’s definitely an encouragement for the state of Karnataka battling against coronavirus. Bangalore is one of the two major hotspots in the state. It also has the highest number of coronavirus case in Karanataka, with 76 confirmed cases as of 17th April. The data released by state health officials suggest that 35 people in Bangalore have successfully recovered from the coronavirus disease and returned home. However, the state has witnessed 3 unfortunate deaths.
What’s In It?
Bangalore currently has a recovery rate of coronavirus higher than that of Delhi and Mumbai-two major cities in the country. Delhi has only 3% recoveries and Mumbai has slightly better at 10%. However, the cases in Delhi and Mumbai are much higher than in Bangalore. CN Ashwath Narayana, state Deputy Chief Minister stated “The recovery rate is a silver lining for frontline healthcare professionals engaged in containing the viral spread. This is also an indication of the right treatment protocols that have been put in place by Karnataka.”
He also mentioned that out of the 35 COVID-19 recovered people, 11 of them took less than 14 days. And the rest of them took 14 to 26 days to be cured. Some officials state that the average recovery period is 24 days. The experts state that it varies from one person to another. The patient who tests positively for coronavirus tests again only after 14 days. Patients are discharged and declared recovered if they test negative twice in the span of 24 hours. The administrator of Victoria Hospital in the city stated that most cases of the hospital are of asymptomatic people. Bangalore has seen a high recovery rate due to the efficient isolation of people. Even though 1 lakh people retuned to Bangalore from abroad since the pandemic outbreak. The city was still successful in containing the cases to 315. Even though this might seem like a small victory, we hope other cities witness improved recovery rates in the future. Did you know Post Office To Deliver Mangoes To Homes In Bangalore?
