India reported 24,354 new Covid-19 cases

India reported 24,354 new Covid-19 cases and 234 related fatalities in the last 24 hours ending 8 am on Saturday. The country currently has 2,73,889 active cases, data from the Union Health Ministry showed. Kerala remains the top contributor, recording 13,834 new cases. Of the 234 deaths, 95 were reported from Kerala. The death toll now stands at over 4.48 lakh.


As Covid-19 seems to be on the wane in the rest of the country, the small hill state of Mizoram is not only reporting a disproportionately large number of cases, but also the highest prevalence amongst children. About 16% of the cases registered in August and September have been in the 0-10 age group, which is twice the national average, though none of them is serious. Some of these infections were reported from outbreaks in residential schools and orphanages.


After Supreme Court orders on compensation for Covid-19 victims, the Centre amended provisions for assistance under the State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF), enabling states to pay compensation of Rs 50,000 to the next of kin of those who died due to the pandemic.


The Ministry of Home Affairs Friday said it has already approved the release of over Rs 7,400 crore to 23 states as second installment of the Centre’s share in the SDRF for this purpose. The order in this regard was issued on September 25.
