Now, we have an update on the situation in Uttar Pradesh and its 202 million residents, and it appears that the use of Ivermectin has continued the prevention trend.

According to the Times of India in an October 20 report, thanks to the state’s decision to allow and prescribe Ivermectin, 71 out of 75 districts reported zero fresh cases of COVID-19 in 24 hours, and the remaining four had a total of 12 newly reported cases.

Now, 43 districts continue to be completely Covid-free with no active cases present. The entire state has not seen more than 50 new cases of COVID-19 per day for the last two months.

Following the October 20 report, a government official in Uttar Pradesh said, “Despite aggressive tracing and testing, UP’s positivity rate which shows the level of infections in the people, has been registering a steady decline for several days indicating that Covid is receding from the state.”

India.com is reporting that the state of Uttar Pradesh, at the order of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, is requiring any visitors to be tested for COVID-19 prior to entry. This decision is due to the rising rates in cases in surrounding states and countries, which boast a much higher vaccination rate than Uttar Pradesh.
As of October 28, there were only 13 new COVID-19 cases reported throughout eight districts.
Adityanath had implemented “surveillance committees” to assist with fighting the virus. The purpose of the committees were to go to homes, for “timely identification, isolation of Covid patients and distribution of medicine kits (which, of course, included the use of Ivermectin), pulse oximeters and thermometers in the state.”
