The most common symptoms were fever (38.3%), tiredness (20.6%) and cough (17.8%). Only 0.8% patients died due to the novel corona virus.
Conclusion: The mortality due to the virus in India is not alarming and we need to consider starting focusing back on other diseases as well. The mean age of the deceased was 58.42 which highlights that elderly at a greater risk to succumb to disease and hence should be preferred for as priority one for vaccination against the disease. The numbers of Covid-19 cases have reduced considerably over last few months in the country, but this does not mean that the pandemic has gone away. We need to be cautious, use this opportunity to vaccinate the maximum population to prevent second wave of the disease.
