AS the third wave of Covid-19 powered by the Omicron variant sends numbers soaring across India, data from government hospitals of the states reveal interesting trends.

In Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal, bed occupancy in hospitals and Covid care centres has increased. Hospitalisation has gone up also in Maharashtra, Punjab, Bihar and Gujarat. Weekend and night curfews are in force, the fear is rising.

There is a feeling that health infrastructure in these places is in for another serious challenge.

However, percentage of active cases admitted to hospitals has decreased in many parts. In Bihar, it has dipped from 47.72% to 1.9% in about a week.

Experts believe vaccination has played a part in lowering hospitalisation.
