‘Third Wave peak in city is now over’

‘Indore had seen a peak of the Third Wave of Covid-19 in the last week of January and cases have been decreasing ever since then. It’s believed that the number of daily cases will drop to two digits in the next couple of days. The cases will drop to their lowest level by the end of the month. Even when the cases are decreasing, people mustn’t stop following the Covid protocol as the disease is new and it’s uncertain that new variants of the disease won’t be found’ — A senior health officer

‘All Covid Care Centres empty’

‘All Covid Care Centres are empty as there are no takers for the empty beds. The district administration has decided to shut the Covid Care Centres, especially Maa Ahilya Covid Care Centre, Manpur, Depalpur, and other areas. The highest number of Covid-19 patients admitted to the Maa Ahilya Covid Care Centre was only 99 and it didn’t even reach 100 in the Third Wave. The highest number of cases during the second wave at the Maa Ahilya Covid Care Centre was over 600’ — Maa Ahilya Covid Care Centre-in-charge
