Imphal, October 14 2021: Manipur on Thursday witnessed the lowest daily count in the number of fresh Covid cases in nearly six months as the State logged 69 new infections.

This is the lowest daily-case count since April 19, which saw 54 Covid cases.

Manipur also logged zero death in the last 24 hours.

The 69 new Covid cases were confirmed at RIMS (2), JNIMS (13) and other testing centres (54) and are from Imphal East (10), Imphal West (30), Thoubal (11), Bishnupur (2), Ukhrul (5), Chandel (1), Churachandpur (4), Kamjong (6) according to COVID-19 Common Control Room.

As the new cases were detected from among the 2,780 samples tested in the last 24 hours, the daily positivity rate thus registered was 2.5 percent, which is considerably lower than 5.2 percent recorded on Wednesday.

Notably, this is also the second time in the month that the daily test positivity fell below 5 percent, with the first one being 4.3 percent updated on October 7 last.

Even as the positivity rate of the last 24 hours fulfils the criteria for opening up recommended by the World Health Organisation if the State could maintain the same for another 13 days, the positivity rate reported from Kamjong was disturbingly high at 30 percent as 6 samples out of 20 tested returned positive. Kamjong is also the only district in Manipur that reported a positive rate in the past 24 hours in double digit.

With no death reported from the disease (COVID-19) in the past 24 hours, the death toll remains at 1889 .

Today, 84 persons were also discharged from Home Isolation (14), RIMS (12), JNIMS (16) and CCCs (42), improving the recovery rate to 97.28 percent against 97.26 percent on Wednesday and reducing the active cases to 1,444 .

The cumulative figure of Covid cases, on the other hand, now stands at 1,22,432 including the 1,19,099 recovered cases.

According to the data shared by the Government, 770 D type and 196 B type oxygen cylinders were also distributed to different health facilities in Manipur on October 13 and 5374 Covid vaccine doses were administered on the same day.

Altogether 1800472 Covid vaccine doses have been administered in the State so far.

As enumerated by the COVID-19 Common Control Room, COVID-19 beds available at different health care centres are RIMS (general beds 212; ICU/HDU beds 27), JNIMS (general beds 40; ICU/HDU beds 1), Iboyaima Hospital (general beds 25; ICU/HDU beds 5), Jivan Hospital (general beds 20; ICU/HDU beds 5), Shija Hospital (general beds 43; ICU/HDU beds 35) and Raj Medicity (general beds 81; ICU/HDU beds 23) .
