A senior health official on Saturday confirmed that  Mizoram's Covid-19 graph and infection rate are moving downwards since the last few days as the northeastern state logged one of its lowest single-day positivity rate of 3.48 per cent.

The state's COVID-19 tally had gone up to 47,995 as 524 more people, including 103 children and 4 BSF personnel, tested positive for the infection, while three fresh fatalities pushed its coronavirus death toll to 177, he said.

The coronavirus curve and the infection rate per 1,000 samples have shown a downward trend in the last few days, official spokesperson on COVID-19, Dr Pachuau Lalmlasawma said.

"We are of the opinion that the COVID-19 curve has begun to show a downward movement. If this trend continues, we are hopeful that the high transmission rate could be curtailed in the new few weeks," he said.

Lalmalsawma, however, said that the single-day positive cases and infection rate could increase at any time as community transmission is still happening and cases are being reported even in remote villages.

Aizawl district recorded the highest number of new cases at 356, followed by Kolasib (63) and Lawngtlai (47). The state now has 11,139 active cases, while 36,679 people have recovered from the infection so far, including 1,002 on Friday.

Mizoram has tested over 7.24 lakh samples for COVID-19 to date, including 15,020 in the last 24 hours. More than 6.45 lakh people have been inoculated so far.
