128 new patients infected with the coronavirus have appeared in India during last 24 hours, while 173 patients recovered during the same period. According to the data released by the Union Health Ministry, there are 1,998 active cases of corona virus in the country. So far 4,41,48,645 people have recovered from Corona in the country. In the last 24 hours, 1.75 lakh samples were tested across the country. So far, a total of 91.36 crore people have been tested for corona.

India’s current recovery rate is 98.8, which is very satisfactory, and the daily infection rate is just 0.9 percent. 96,200 doses of corona vaccine were given in the last 24 hours. With this, a total of 220.18 crore vaccines have been given in the country so far. The union Health Ministry has termed the media report claiming that the officials of ICMR and CDSCO have accepted the ‘multiple side effects’ of the corona vaccines, as false and misleading.

The ministry has reported that like all other disease vaccines, people who received the corona vaccine experienced mild symptoms including swelling at the injection site, pain, headache, muscle pain, malaise, fever, chills, and joint pain. Research studies have also shown that vaccination has helped reduce the severity of the disease by preventing hospitalizations and deaths due to corona and that the benefits of vaccines outweigh any adverse effects. NTAGI (National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization) in India has periodically reviewed the benefits and side effects of COVID-19 vaccines and supports the above findings.

While, India appears to be in a much better condition, there are claims and counter-claims regarding the Corona epidemic and number of people infected and died in China. One the one hand, China has accepted the death of 60,000 people due to Corona, on the other hand an American university has claimed that nine lakh people died in China due to Corona, reported HS.

There is little denying the fact that Corona has caused much trouble to China during last few weeks. China has accepted that about 60,000 people have died due to the Corona epidemic. China’s National Health Commission reported that as of January 12, 2023, 59,938 people died in hospitals across the country due to the corona epidemic. According to the report of Peking University, by the middle of January, 64 percent of the country’s population has come under the grip of Corona.

Experts say that many deaths in China would have happened in nursing homes or at home, which the Chinese government would not have counted. The government’s official figures may only include deaths in hospitals. It is worth-mentioning here that the Lunar New Year holiday begins in China on January 21. During this, crores of people travel to their hometowns.

Owing to Corona pandemic, the economic growth rate of China has also come down to three percent in the year 2022. Last year, due to the restrictions imposed to deal with the Corona epidemic, the slowdown in the real estate sector, China’s GDP growth rate declined, which is the second slowest in the last 50 years. The National Bureau of Statistics has given this information.
