Mysore/Mysuru: Among the 142 COVID-19 deaths reported in Mysuru, 127 are from Mysuru city alone – within the limits of Mysuru City Corporation. Next comes T. Narasipur with 6 deaths, Nanjangud with 4, two each in Mysuru Taluk and K.R. Nagar and one death has been reported from Hunsur.
H.D. Kote, Nanjangud Rural and Periyapatna have reported zero deaths. One reason why the maximum deaths have been reported in Mysuru city is that the density of population is high. Dense areas lead to more face-to-face interaction among residents, which makes them potential hotspots for the rapid spread of a pandemic. On the other hand, dense areas may have better access to healthcare facilities and greater implementation of social distancing policies and practices.
In the current COVID-19 epidemic, larger city areas have higher infection and higher mortality rates. Data also reveals that the village density is not significantly related to the infection rate, possibly due to more adherences to social distancing guidelines.
In Mysuru city, as per the data released by the District Administration, there are 3,613 cumulative positive cases and 2,315 active cases. 1,171 have been discharged so far in Mysuru city.
