NEW DELHI: Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan on Monday said that India would have 40,000 active Covid-19 cases by February 2021 if COVID-appropriate behaviour is followed.

The Health Minister was mentioning the figure to a prediction done by scientists.

“Science and Technology Ministry got scientists from the world to make prediction model of cases. Research-based on their techniques found that COVID appropriate behaviour for 3-4 months will lead to declining trend in India and by Feb we'll have 40,000 active cases, Harsh Vardhan was quoted by news agency ANI as saying.

When time comes, vaccination procedures, training of staff and other logistics need to be coordinated by state and central governments, Vardhan said.


"Vaccination procedures, training of staff & other logistics need to be coordinated by state and central govts when time comes. We believe that India will make sure to not let COVID19 cases increase and slow decline trend which we're seeing will be maintained," the Health Minister further said.

Meanwhile, the number of active cases stayed below eight lakh for the third consecutive day today and comprised 10.45% of the total caseload.

There are 77,20,55 active cases of coronavirus infection so far in the country.
