#Kolkata: The number of corona infections has been very low for the last few days. A few days ago, the number of corona infections (West Bengal covid updates) increased to 100 at a time. In the last 24 hours, the state has increased again from yesterday. Yesterday, the number of people infected with corona was 517, but today it has increased to 550. However, the number of deaths due to corona was 6 yesterday, it has come down to 5 in the last 24 hours in the state.

As a result, the corona positivity rate in the state has increased to 1.49% from 1.42% yesterday.
A section of the medical community in the state says that while the World Health Organization has repeatedly said that more corona (West Bengal covid updates) should be tested for this omicon panic, so few corona are being tested daily in our state and as a result the number of infected is much less. , It is becoming a matter of considerable concern. The number of corona tests in the state should be further increased and at the same time people should have corona tests as per the doctor’s advice if they have any coronary symptoms.
Despite the fluctuating number of corona infestations in the state, no other district has been able to surpass Kolkata’s record in corona infestation.
