Fresh cases in Chennai dip marginally
THE city on Friday recorded another dip in the number of fresh cases of Covid-19 with only 1,013 people testing positive. The case growth rate in the city has also been low, ever since the cases dropped from the 2,400 levels in the first week of July. Since then, the number of recoveries have risen from 60 per cent to 85 per cent, while active cases have fallen short to just 12.7 per cent.

Officials from the corporation’s Public Health Department said that most people who were diagnosed with Covid-19 in the first week of July, have now been discharged. “The current active cases are those who had tested positive in the past week or so,’’ the official said, while adding that most of the cases are mild-to-moderate, mostly diagnosed from the fever camps or through contact tracing.
