Covid: Chandigarh tricity’s monthly tally sees 40% rise in November

Published

on

The monthly Covid-19 case tally in the tricity showed an uptick in November, for the first time after the second wave peaked in May this year.

The tricity recorded 304 cases in November, nearly 40% rise from the figures in October. It has added to the concern of health authorities, which are bracing for the new Omicron variant of the virus.

In October, the tricity had recorded 219 Covid-19 cases, with Chandigarh being the worst hit with 102 cases, followed by 82 in Mohali and 35 in Panchkula. In November, the number went up to 304, with Mohali reporting 127 cases, followed by 114 in Chandigarh and 63 in Panchkula.

In fact, Panchkula’s November tally is the highest in the past five months. Meanwhile, Chandigarh recorded no fatality in November, a first since the pandemic broke out last March.

During the month, the single-day tally peaked at 26 on November 26. The case fatality rate remained in control, with no death reported in Chandigarh and Panchkula, and just four patients succumbing in Mohali. Even October had witnessed just five deaths. With 46,245 cases and 790 deaths, May had proved to be the deadliest for the tricity.

Infra, facilities being ramped up

Dr GD Puri, head of the PGIMER’s Covid management panel, said: “Earlier, patients with kidney, liver or heart problems were getting infected with Covid-19. But now, patients with primary lung symptoms are getting hospitalised. This is a worrisome situation.”

Dr Puri said even those people who have been vaccinated are contracting the virus and a few severe cases have also surfaced. “We have enough standby beds and ventilators, and facilities will be scaled up as per the situation,” he said.

Mohali civil surgeon Dr Adarshpal Kaur said: “So far, no case of Omicron variant has been reported, and there is nothing to be worried about. We have ramped up our infrastructure and testing to control the rise in the number of cases.”

Panchkula deputy commissioner Mahavir Kaushik on Tuesday held a meeting with the health department and gave directions to strengthen the infrastructure and facilities in view of the new variant. He emphasised on a five-pronged strategy: test, trace, track, vaccinate and follow Covid-19 appropriate behaviour.

Even the Chandigarh health department issued an advisory on Tuesday, urging unvaccinated residents to come forward and get jabbed and asking all to follow Covid-19 appropriate behaviour.

The Midnight Club release date confirmed for 2022

Published

on

Who’s ready for more horror on Netflix? The streamer has stepped up its game in the spooky genre this year alone, releasing the Fear Street trilogy, Squid Game, Oxygen and Mike Flanagan‘s Midnight Mass, just to name a few popular titles.

2022 might just be big year for horror on the platform, too, as we just got confirmation another exciting show will be making its debut.

Flanagan’s next project, The Midnight Club, will premiere sometime in 2022, Netflix has confirmed today. The horror show is based on a Young Adult book of the same name by Christopher Pike, which means we’ll be getting a bit of a different tone from the filmmaker’s previous works.

Netflix shared a list of 2022 releases on their @NetflixGeeked account, including highly-anticipated releases like The Umbrella Academy season 3, The Sandman and Vikings: Valhalla. Along with the year confirmation, the streamer shared some synopses for their upcoming releases to get fans hyped.

The Midnight Club synopsis

Unfortunately for Flanagan fans, Netflix kept their description very short for The Midnight Club, simply writing in a tweet: “A new horror series from Mike Flanagan and Trevor Macy (The Haunting of Hill House, Midnight Mass) based on the creative works of bestselling author Christopher Pike.”

Given this new show is based on a book, however, we do have an idea on what it’ll be about. According to LibraryThing, here’s the synopsis for the source material:

In a hospice for the terminally ill, five teenagers, who meet every night to tell each other scary stories, make a pact that the first of them to die must try to contact the others from beyond the grave.

According to one of the stars of the show, Crystal Balint (who also appeared in Midnight Mass), you might want to brush up on other Christopher Pike novels ahead of the Netflix release as well. It’s been reported that other books by the author will be incorporated in The Midnight Club, too.

Along with Balint, The Midnight Club stars horror legend Heather Langenkamp and Midnight Mass alums Samantha Sloyan, Zach Gilford, Robert Longstreet and Matt Biedel.

The Midnight Club release date predictions

Though we now know for sure that The Midnight Club will hit Netflix in 2022, we still don’t know what month. However, we can speculate! The series began filming in March 2021, and according to What’s On Netflix, they wrapped in September 2021.

If post-production takes, let’s say six months, we could very well be looking at a spring 2022 release date for The Midnight Club. Flanagan’s past shows for Netflix — The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor and Midnight Mass — all debuted around Halloween in time for the spooky season, so here’s to hoping his next project doesn’t take that long.

We’ll be sure to update you once we get a more specific release date for The Midnight Club! In the meantime, you can buy the book right here.
