14 states reported less than 5,000 Covid-19 cases: Health Ministry

Oct 01, 2020 19:09 IST

In some good news, Union Health Ministry data says, 14 states in the country have reported less than 5,000 active Covis-19 cases. The officials added that the focus should be on states with a high caseload in order to break the transmission cycle of the viral infection. Meanwhile, 10 states and Union Territories contribute 78% of the total recovered cases, with Maharashtra leading the tally with over 1,000,000 recoveries, followed by Andhra Pradesh with at least 600,000. Epidemiologists have warned that govt should monitor why some states are reporting fewer cases, to rule out factors like lower testing numbers or not having an up-to-date reporting mechanism.
