1st dose vaccinated elderly aren’t able to get 2nd dose even per delayed schedule. Such terrible planning! If CoWIN can’t even ensure 2nd dose allocation, it’s terrible and poorly designed tech. Tech bros were always going to mess up public health, but they even messed up tech!

501 districts are now reporting more than 100 Covid cases and that’s a big change from the situation just 15 days ago. Clear cut sign that the pandemic has spread to India’s hinterland. Close to 70% of India has turned red in last 2 months: https://t.co/RqjISHGQ6Y https://t.co/sT24xdDC9D

Test data is up on https://t.co/EwIiSsWKeq . Tests 18.50L, up 3.75L from a day earlier. TPR 17.8%, down 7%. So apparently fewer cases are due to significantly lower TPR, not just fewer tests. This is good news; let us see if the trends hold up over coming days.

As I said, testing has dropped considerably. Explains the lower daily case numbers: https://t.co/xAz2jdSjtY

If anything, such data should goad people into upping their guard even more and get their vaccinations as quickly as possible in the circumstances. No letting any guards down. For now, live with the assumption that numbers are multiples of what the data records.

BREAKING: India records more recoveries (3.5 lakh) than daily recorded cases (3.2 lakh) in last 24 hours as per official figures. Important caveats on testing etc apply, let’s hope this continues for real. Reminder though: the peak is still said to be ahead.
