Bengaluru: The number of Covid clusters has now risen to 28 after the city’s Yelahanka zone reported two new clusters. Two housing complexes have reported the new clusters.

All 23 clusters in the Mahadevapura zone are situated in apartments, whereas the lone cluster in the Rajarajeshwari zone is situated in a college. Bellandur, Kadugodi, Doddanekkundi, Varthur, HSR Layout, Horamavu, Hagadur, Hudi, Garudachar Palya, and Begur are the ten wards with the highest number of positive cases reported in the City over the past seven days.

Bengaluru continues to have the second-highest number of active cases after Mumbai with a caseload of 6,056. Hospitalisation has slightly increased, with 84 patients receiving treatment in the general ward, six in high dependency units, and three in the intensive care unit. In the last seven days, there has been a 98.73 per cent recovery rate. The case fatality rate in the past week is just 0.03 per cent.

The precautionary dose coverage among those over 18 is now set to improve as the Union Health Ministry on Wednesday July 6 reduced the gap between the second dose and booster dose from nine months to six months.
