Maharashtra report of Union Health Ministry does not match facts
This report of the Union Health Ministry does not seem to match the facts. This report may be a bit outdated. In Maharashtra, more than 62 thousand cases were reported on Thursday and 853 people died due to corona. Earlier, for just three days, there were less than 60 thousand new cases in Maharashtra. On Wednesday, 57640 new cases came but a record of 920 deaths was made. On Tuesday, the number of new positive cases was slightly more than 51 thousand and on Monday more than 48 thousand new cases were reported. Again on Saturday, more than 63 thousand cases were reported. That is, on the basis of three days’ record, it was assumed that the situation in Maharashtra is improving.

Currently, the recovery rate of infection in the state is 85.54 percent, while the death rate is 1.49 percent. So far, 2 crore 86 lakh 61 thousand 668 samples have been tested in the state.

Currently, 6 lakh 39 thousand 75 patients are being treated in the state.
