Agra reports zero Covid cases after over 100 days


After more than 100 days, Agra reported zero cases of Covid-19, bringing considerable relief to the overstressed medical infrastructure as the last few days saw only two or three cases.

According to officials, the total number of cases since March 2020 was 25,709. The total number of fatalities is 453. The number of active cases now is 63. So far 11,95,181 samples have been tested. The recovery rate stands at 97.99 per cent.

Life is gradually returning to near normal as restrictions have been lifted. The medical fraternity does not share the alarm of an imminent third wave, provided people follow the government guidelines.

Meanwhile, doctors at the Nemi Chand Homeopathic Hospital have begun distributing free preventive medicines to stall the third wave. Director Pradeep Gupta claimed there were adequate medicines in homeopathy to treat Covid-19 and even black fungus. The hospital has treated a large number of critical cases.

“However, the government has not given us any opportunity or provided support to alternative therapies,” Gupta lamented.
