The first Covid-19 patient in India has tested positive once more.

In January of last year, a medical student from Kerala became the first Indian to test positive for Covid-19. She has now infected the virus a second time. After returning from Wuhan, China, where she had been studying, the Kerala resident was diagnosed with coronavirus.
The student is asymptomatic, according to the concerned district medical officer (DMO). She has chosen to isolate herself at home and is being closely observed. According to reports, the 20-year-old is from the Thrissur area and received her test results on July 13.
Officials acquainted with the situation also stated that the student has yet to receive the first dosage of the Covid-19 vaccine, which has been licensed.
Since the second wave of Covid-19 infections hit portions of India earlier this year, the number of new confirmed cases has been steadily decreasing.
Experts have seen a dramatic increase in the R-value in several sections of the country, such as Kerala and the northeast. The R-value represents the number of people infected by a single Covid-19 sufferer.
Kerala’s R-value is predicted to be around 1.10 in this situation. To put this in context, India’s overall R-value was estimated to be 1.37 between March 9 and April 21 this year, during the peak of the second wave of Covid-19 infections.
Kerala’s health minister, Veena George, told reporters on Sunday that the recent increase in cases was expected due to the unlocking measures.
Kerala reported 14,539 new confirmed Covid-19 cases on Tuesday, with another 10,331 recoveries and 124 new Covid deaths.
According to the state government’s dashboard, there are 1,15,174 active cases of Covid-19 in Kerala. Kerala’s recovery rate is 95.89 percent, with a case fatality rate (CFR) of 0.48 percent.
