In Odisha, Covid recovery rate has improved to 98.5 per cent. While the state has reported more than 10 lakh positive cases so far, its active caseload now is 7042.
The state’s cumulative recovery figure is about to cross one million mark in a couple of days, given the current recovery trend. On the other hand, the state has achieved vaccination coverage of 58 percent for the first dose and 72 percent for the second dose for the beneficiaries above 18 years of age. The vaccine wastage rate in Odisha too has improved to -5.5 per cent, enabling the State Health administration to deliver an additional 12 lakh doses of vaccines from the same allotment.
