The State claims that it still has a low CFR (case fatality rate) of 0.4% even as COVID takes more lives every day.

The active case pool soared to register 1,35,631 patients. Though the number of hospitalised persons is 14,401, the State is adding over 2,500 new hospital admissions every day. On Wednesday, new hospital admissions was 2,580. A total of 3,05,836 people in the State are at present in home or institutional isolation.

ICU admissions are on the rise in all districts. The State has close to one thousand critically ill patients (999) in ICUs now, while the number of patients requiring ventilator assistance rose to 313.

The disease transmission in northern districts has been skyrocketing and the active case pool in six districts has over 10,000 patients.
