Data of 4,500 participants were taken for the results of the time of midterm analysis from four states of India and more results are likely to come in the next two to three months. It was found that in resettlement colonies in South Delhi's urban areas which have a very congested population had a very high (highest reported yet in any sero-assessment) seroprevalence of 74.7 per cent, Dr Puneet Misra, Professor of Community Medicine at AIIMS, New Delhi, who led the ! ! $ ! !!

Even before the second wave, children below the age of 18 in South Delhi had as much sero- '( & prevalence (73.9 per cent) as the below 18 years (74.8 per cent). "These areas in Delhi and NCR (Faridabad) may have higher seroprevalence after the intense second wave. Probably, these levels of seroprevalence may be protective against any 'Third wave'," Dr Misra said. "In congested Urban areas of Delhi, since children already have high seroprevalence, opening schools, may after all not be a very risky proposition. During the second wave, the NCR region of Faridabad (rural area) has a seroprevalence of 59.3 per cent (almost equal in both age groups), could be considered high compared to previous national surveys," the survey said. Gorakhpur Rural has a very high seroprevalence of 87.9 per cent (2-18 years) with 80.6 per cent and above 18 years with 90.3 per cent. These levels are likely to ward off the "third wave".

"Along with policemen, private security guards have played an important role during COVID-19 pandemic. We will vaccinate them against infection on priority," said Silawat, who is the minister in-charge of district.

Student activists Natasha Narwal, Devangana Kalita and Asif Iqbal Tanha walked out of Tihar prison on Thursday, hours after a court here ordered their immediate release in the Delhi riots "conspiracy" case. The order came two days after Delhi High Court granted bail to Narwal, Kalita and Tanha, who were arrested in May last year under the stringent The 20 more people whom the health department has traced out through contact history are mostly family members and they are being examined and are under the scanner. However, it has been detected in other states, such as Maharashtra, too. In Maharashtra, the health department has commented that this Delta-plus strain has in- Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). The three student activists were not released from the prison on time over delays in verifying and addresses their sureties, it was claimed. In its order for the immediate release of the trio, the Delhi court said the delay in the verification process by the police could not be a plausible reason for the accused to be kept imprisoned. ''It shows the desperation of the government... We are women who are not scared of them," Kalita told reporters after , creased transmitability so, it may trigger a third wave of Covid. According to the family members of the woman patient in Bhopal, she developed Covid symptoms on May 23. They took her for an RT-PCR test, whereupon she was detected as Covid-positive. Her treatment continued in home isolation. The infection spread, but the doctors said that the medicines she was being given were slowly working. Gradually she recovered and, for the past 12 days, she seems to be in fine health. The health department conducted tests on all the family members, but all came negative. coming out of the jail, amid a chorus of sloganeering supporters. "We survived because we received tremendous support from friends, from well-wishers. I thank them all," she said. Narwal said she doesn't want to comment on the case as it's still in court. "However, we would like to thank the Delhi High Court for upholding what we believe in. Any such protest that we have done is not terrorism. It was a democratic protest, led by women," Narwal said. Her father, Mahavir Narwal, died of Covid in May while she was in jail.

Every captain needs it but perhaps the Indian captain wants it more. It's how history will remember him just like it remembers Dhoni with a lot of respect and utmost fondness for those heroic World title wins. Williamson stands in his way with a bunch of fine cricketers and the most amiable set of players that one would come across in international cricket. They are India's rivals but when Williamson hits those cover drives, Devon Conway teases a Ravichandran Ashwin or Ravindra Jadeja, Trent Boult gets one ba- 3 2 nana in-swinger aimed at Rohit Sharma's bootlaces, the crazy fans of a cricket- mad nation wouldn't possibly be able to hate them. These are 'Gentlemen have who Cricketers' grown on the fans bit by bit with their cricket and their conduct. It's difficult not to love them, especially after their gut-wrenching World Cup defeat at the Lord's two summers back. If Williamson happens to stand with the ICC Test Mace on the Hampshire Bowl balcony, one might just smile and think that perhaps "Nice guys don't always finish last". But after two years and half a dozen series later, a Indian battle-hardened team will give its all in a match, from which the winning team will also walk away with a USD 1.6 million windfall.

Overall, more than half (62.3 per cent) of the rural population surveyed showed evidence of past infection. The Agartala Rural site had the least seroprevalence (51.9 per cent) probably because it also included some tribal population which generally have lower mobility resulting in to vulnerability lower COVID19 infection.
