Here is your 10-point checklist for this great story:

  1. Dharavi, a coronavirus cluster in Mumbai that is 2.5 km2 wide and contains nearly 6.5 lakh people, reported a single new case on Tuesday, approaching the flattening of the curve even as Mumbai continues to see steady growth in COVID-19 figures.

  2. Mumbai has reported 785 new cases in the last 24 hours, bringing the total in the city to 86,509; 64 deaths were reported during the same period, bringing the total number of deaths to over 5,000. However, the city has seen the number of new cases slow, which authorities say is a good sign.

  3. The Assam chapter of the Indian Medical Association or IMA wrote to state health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, urging the health department not to make “fanciful decisions”. The IMA expressed “immense resentment” at the recent changes in COVID-19 situation management policy.

  4. “The IMA strongly protests against the government’s order to hire health workers and doctors in 11 days of continuous service in COVID services and then only three days of quarantine before rehiring them in COVID functions subject to negative tests for the disease, “said the IMA. in the letter.

  5. WHO has said it will publish a new science file in a few days, gathering knowledge on how the virus can be transmitted and ensuring that its guidelines remain evidence-based.

  6. The two-meter physical distance guideline was a major factor in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the coronavirus can spread in the air far beyond two meters, said a group of 239 international scientists on Monday.

  7. The number of cases recovered per million inhabitants in India is higher than the COVID-19 cases active per million, said on Tuesday the Ministry of Health, recognizing the States and Union territories for early identification and effective management of coronavirus case.

  8. Approval of human clinical trials for two India-made COVID-19 vaccine candidates – COVAXIN and ZyCov-D – marks the “beginning of the end” of the new coronavirus pandemic that has infected more than 1.12 crore people worldwide and left more than 5.3 lakh dead, the center said last week.

  9. Phase I trials for COVAXIN, which was developed in association with the ICMR, are expected to be completed in 28 days – which would put the vaccine candidate on track for release on August 15.

  10. The country’s COVID-19 count exceeded seven lakh on Tuesday, with a one-day peak of 22,252 infections, five days after crossing the six lakh mark.
