1 min read

Mysuru: Deputy Commissioner Dr Bagadi Gautham on Tuesday allayed fears over the cases of new found threat in Delta Plus Variant in the district.

Deputy Commissioner told media persons “there is nothing to panic, as Mysuru has not reported any cases of Delta Plus variant. We have sent 40 samples to Nimhans, Bengaluru for genomic sequencing and there is nothing to worry so far.”

We are managing the Covid second wave of pandemic. Currently, the Delta Plus variant is found only in Maharashtra, Kerala and Madhya Pradesh, said DC.

Deputy commissioner also asserted that total positivity rate has reduced to nine per cent from 16-17 per cent reported earlier. It is all because of ramped up testings in the last 10 days.

On Monday alone 9800 tests were carried out and all the taluk health officers and tahsildars were told to focus on testing.

There was progress in vaccination also  yesterday as 40,000 doses were administered across the district. We have adequate stock of vaccine and will speed up the drive to achieve the intended target, DC added.
