According to Dr Tatrarao Lahane, director of the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER), deaths have increased corresponding to the rise of the virus. “We have seen an increase in deaths from the second wave which was deadlier than the first. The current deaths are those most affected two weeks ago. As a result of the lockdown, we will see deaths level off and even decrease in the coming days, ”Lahane said.
They saw the new cases stabilize in 19 districts of the state. The numbers will decrease further in the next 15 days. The stabilization will also be replicated in the other districts in the coming days. “This trend has also reduced the load on our medical infrastructure. There is no longer a problem now with the oxygen supply and people are hospital beds available for patients, ”said Lahane.
