The daily covid graph saw a worrying upward curve as India added 6,050 cases on Thursday, which is 13 per cent higher from the 5,335 count as on Wednesday. Daily cases have crossed the 6,000-mark for the first time since September 16 last year.

Amid the upward trend in infections, Union Health Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya called for a review meet with health ministers of all states and Union Territories on Friday afternoon to review the preparedness in the country.

The death count in the country now stands at 5,30,943 with 14 deaths reported on Thursday — three reported from Maharashtra, two each from Karnataka and Rajasthan, one each from Delhi, Haryana, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir and Punjab and one death being reconciled by Kerala, according to Union health ministry data updated on Friday.

The daily positivity rate, an indicator of the spread of the infection, currently stands at 3.39 per cent and the country has an active caseload of 25,587.

The government has said that it is prepared to deal with a spike in infections. According to the health minister, Mansukh Mandaviya, ICU beds, oxygen supply, and other critical care arrangements are in place. “There’s a weekly review of preparedness,” he briefed the media.
