AHMEDABAD: In 24 hours ending at 5 on Monday, Gujarat added 1,640 new cases of Covid-19, or an average of 17 cases every 15 minutes. It was the highest number ever for anyone in the state during the pandemic, surpassing the highest early number of 1,607 on November 27th. The peak was reported after 115 days.
To put the figure in perspective, the state has recorded a doubling of cases in just seven days from 890 to 15 March. The eight municipal corporations accounted for 76% of the highest daily cases in 43 days.
Amid an alarming increase, the silver lining is that the state recorded the deaths of four patients in 24 hours with a daily mortality rate of 0.2%. In comparison, the previous increase on November 27 had a mortality rate of 1% with the deaths of 16 patients.
With 7,847 active cases, the highest since January 10, hospitals in the state are rapidly filling up.
Covid severity is low
Dr Bharat Gadhvi, president of the Association of Ahmedabad Hospitals and Nursing Homes, said bed occupancy in Ahmedabad private hospitals is 903 or 39% of capacity. Cases have increased in the last seven days. On March 15, occupancy was at 20% with 450 patients. We have doubled patients in that period, he said, adding that about 750 random patients are under home packages with different hospitals.
Dr Saurabh Shah, director of Aartham Hospital, said 80 of their 93 beds have been occupied since Monday evening. After Diwali, for the first time we are rejecting patients due to lack of free beds. Of those admitted, 56 have moderate symptoms. Fortunately so far, the severity of the disease is a bit low during this wave, he said.
The four major cities reported one-third or more beds occupied by designated beds. While the occupancy stands at about 33-35% in Surat and Ahmedabad, the occupancy is 56% in Vadodara and 25% in Rajkot, doctors said.
