The Union health minister on Thursday released a list of 10 districts that have the highest number of active Covid-19 cases at present. Out of these 10 districts, only two are outside Maharashtra. Active cases refer to the number of patients who are infected with Covid-19 at present. This number is significant as even if an area reports a high number of infections daily if the recovery rate is high, the number of active case will remain low.

According to ministry data, Pune has 18,474 active cases, which is the highest. It is followed by Nagpur (12,724), Thane (10.460), Mumbai (9,973), Bengaluru Urban (5,526), Ernakulam (5,430), Amravati (5,259), Jalgaon (5,029), Nashik (4.525) and Aurangabad (4,354).

Watch: Covaxin regular emergency use; Maharashtra’s ‘worrisome’ situation

Maharashtra on Wednesday reported 13,659 Covid-19 infections, which was the highest single-day spike of 2021. Mumbai too witnessed a massive spike as its daily infection tally on Wednesday was 1,539 cases.

On Wednesday, Pune city reported 1,384 fresh infections, Nagpur city recorded 1,513 cases.

Explaining why the active case graph matters, Union health secretary Rajesh Bhushan said that though Kerala is reporting a significant number of daily infections, its active caseload is actually coming down. But Maharashtra, Punjab are the two states where the number of active cases has shot up astronomically. The health secretary also mentioned Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana as being at the “tipping point”.
