Hyderabad: While the entire country suffers from the rapid spread of coronavirus, the Old City of Hyderabad is not affected by this novel virus.
The fact that the number of corona positives in the local pH seal is less than 10 percent is surprising to both the public and doctors.
At the same time, in the suburbs including Hyderabad, this rate is 40 to 50 percent.
A large number of Covid-19 tests are performed every day in Old City PHCs.
Even 5 percent of them are not being tested positive. Rapid antigen testing is being done at 18 health centers in the old city.
On the 10th of this month, 50 people were tested at Darulshifa Health Center and only one of them turned out to be positive. The RT-PCR test, which can detect the virus accurately, also shows a positive rate.
At the health centers in Darulshifa, Azampura and Yakutpura, 99 percent of the test results are negative.
Most importantly, the positive rate in the Yakutpura-2 pH range is zero. Of the 471 people tested so far in this PHC range, none has been diagnosed with Covid-19.
Doctors say that low migration to the old city and consumption of spices made of ‘haleem’ will increase immunity, which is probably the only reason for the low positivity rate here.
In addition, the consumption of dry fruits is high in these areas, which are said to play an important role in boosting immunity. Medical experts are surprised that the spread of the virus in the old city of Hyderabad is so low.
On the other hand, coronavirus spread continues in Telangana. 75,289 samples were tested in the last 24 hours. Of these, 4,801 were positive. So far, 5,06,988 Corona positive cases have been reported in Telangana state.
Recently 32 people died in the state with Corona. The death toll rose to 2,803. There are currently 60,136 active cases in the state.
The state government said that today 7,430 people have been recovered from Corona. The maximum number of 756 cases were registered under GHMC.
